Across the country, violence, harassment, and discrimination against Asian Americans has been on the rise. On the night of March 16th, news broke of a shooting in Atlanta. Eight people were shot, six of whom were Asian-American women. We strongly condemn this reprehensible behavior and any form of targeted violence. In support of the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community, we’ve compiled a list of nonprofit organizations you can support to help stop the hate. Many of the organizations also offer helpful educational resources for the AAPI community and their allies.
