In response to the alarming escalation in xenophobia and bigotry resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, Asian Pacific Planning and Policy Council (A3PCON), Chinese for Affirmative Action (CAA) and San Francisco Asian American Studies Department have launched a reporting center to collect and track incidents of anti-Asian American and Pacific islander hate violence, adult harassment, discrimination, shunning, and child bullying in California and throughout the country. The reporting center will enable individuals who have been directly impacted by or witnessed firsthand this issue to share their stories at www.a3pcon.org/stopaapihate. The lead organizations plan to work with public, private and other community based organizations to develop targeted education and media campaigns, to provide resources for impacted individuals and to advocate for policies and programs dedicated to curtailing racial profiling.
The Asian Pacific Policy & Planning Council encourages all who have witnessed or experienced micro-aggressions, bullying, harassment, hate speech, or violence to help them document and address AAPI hate. The more information collected, the better A3PCON can respond and prevent further incidents from occurring. Submit an incident report form (available in multiple languages) by navigating to this link.
