Combating Anti-Asian Violence: An Essential Resource Guide

We need to #StopAsianHate together in the workplace, in the industry, and in our every day. 

In and outside of the United States, Anti-Asian racism, violence, and hate crimes have been surging, especially against our elders. Action needs to be taken now to ensure the safety of the Asian community.

The Asians in Animation Team has compiled a robust amount of resources for the Asian community.

The Essential Resource Guide to Combating Anti-Asian Violence includes resources for:

Having Difficult Conversations • Protecting Yourself • If Something Happens to You • Legal Aid • Mental Health • What Allies Can Do • Asian-American News Sources • Initiatives • News • Where to Support Asian Work • Hate Crime Data • Actions you can take now – Helping the Elderly (Bay Area, NYC, LA, and more)

We can fight and #StopAsianHate together.
