THE AAPI COMMUNITY
u.s. history of asian discrimination

HOW CAN I HELP?
There are many ways you can help -- browse through these links for petitions to sign, fundraisers to donate to, and resources to educate yourself and others on. Plus, don’t forget to register to vote.
WHAT IS HAPPENING?
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen an escalation in anti-Asian racism and violent attacks on the AAPI community. These attacks spiked in 2021, particularly among elderly Asian Americans. Yet despite this surge in attacks, many hate crimes against Asian community fail to make the headlines.
IS THE RISE IN ANTI-AAPI VIOLENCE NEW?
Sadly, no. Although we’ve seen a rise in anti-Asian racism during the COVID-19 pandemic, the United States has had a long history of discrimination, exclusion, and violence directed towards the AAPI community.
Here are some resources on the history of Asian discrimination in the U.S.
