Cal-APABA applauds the API Legislative Caucus, the Asian Pacific Planning and Policy Council, Chinese for Affirmative Action and San Francisco State University Asian American Studies Department for joining together to launch the “Stop AAPI Hate” Reporting Center. The purpose of the center is to collect and track incidents of anti-Asian American and Pacific Islander hate, violence and discrimination in California and throughout the country. Collecting this data is important to shedding light and giving visibility to the disturbing rise of racism and xenophobia towards the AAPI community. We encourage individuals to share their stories with both the Stop AAPI Hate Reporting Center (www.a3pcon.org/stopaapihate) and Stand Against Hatred, (www.standagainsthatred.org/) which is a website documenting hate crimes and incidents nationally against Asian Americans. Stand Against Hatred is hosted by Asian Americans Advancing Justice.
