According to the AAPI Hate Network Report, anti-Asian hate crimes have increased nearly 150% in major cities during 2020. These numbers reflect a growing trend of discrimination against Asian Americans during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Intentional Allyship - it takes all of us

The United States is no stranger to race-based hate crimes and discrimination. Education and intentional allyship are important for us to move toward a culture of acceptance and respect. What you can do as an intention ally:

  • Call out discrimination and racist behavior including, but not limited to, jokes, slurs, xenophobic and/or racist language, the fetishization of AAPI women, the perpetuation of the “model minority” myth, and more
  • Hold your departments, units, colleagues, fellow students, and leadership accountable to anti-racist policies and action
  • Support non-profit organizations like Asian Pacific Policy & Planning Council (A3PCON), Stop AAPI Hate, and the Asian Americans Justice Caucus
