23 million people across the United States and territories identify as Asian comprised of East Asian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, Native Hawaiian and the Pacific Islander community.
We stand with our Asian brothers and sisters and mourn those who have died as a result of hate and marginalization. We stand in support of Asian communities, and as Social Workers in Health Care spaces, we will continue to build our own capacity to meet their needs & promote justice.
On this Day of Action, Day of Healing, we encourage you to visit here for more information about what YOU can do now: Asian American Day of Action.
Invest time and energy to support existing AAPI based social justice organizations and initiatives such as:
Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Atlanta
Stop AAPI Hate
National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum (NAPAWF)
AAPI Women Lead
