Stop AAPI Hate has been cited several hundred times by policymakers, journalists, and community activists working to address and combat anti-Asian racism across the country.
In response to the alarming escalation in xenophobia and bigotry resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Asian Pacific Planning and Policy Council (A3PCON), Chinese for Affirmative Action (CAA), and the Asian American Studies Department of San Francisco State University launched the Stop AAPI Hate reporting center on March 19, 2020.
The center tracks and responds to incidents of hate, violence, harassment, discrimination, shunning, and child bullying against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States.Visit the Site
Our five-pronged approach recognizes that in order to effectively address anti-Asian racism we must work to end all forms of structural racism leveled at Black, Indigenous, and other communities of color: 1) Serve as the leading aggregator of anti-Asian and anti-Pacific Islander hate incidents, 2) Offer multilingual resources for impacted community members, 3) Provide technical assistance from rapid response to preventative measures, 4) Support community-based safety measures and restorative justice efforts, and 5) Advocate for local, state, and national policies that reinforces human rights and civil rights protections.

National Asian Pacific American Women's Forum
Building collective power with AAPI women and girls to gain full agency over our lives, our families, and our communities.keyboard_arrow_down
Ahead of the 2020 election, NAPAWF engaged historically ignored Asian American and Pacific Islander women voters in Georgia, Illinois, Arizona, Florida, and Indiana, making 40,126 calls and sending 12,455 texts in 18 languages to get out the vote.
The National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum (NAPAWF) builds leaders who are AAPI women and girls in order to organize on a grassroots level for policy change in support of reproductive rights, health, and justice for the AAPI community.
We use research, analysis, and strategic communications to raise the visibility of AAPI reproductive rights, health, and justice issues, and build a core base of engaged AAPI women leaders from diverse ethnicities and regions of the US to advocate for reproductive justice policy change. We mobilize this base both to prevent harmful policies like sex-selective abortion bans, which stereotype and criminalize AAPI women for their pregnancy outcomes, from passing, and to push forward progressive policies such as expansion of health care access for immigrant women and families.
