Nonprofits launch site for Asian Americans to report coronavirus-related racism
by KhmerLife on Mar 20, 2020
Asian American and Pacific Islander groups have launched a reporting tool for people to report coronavirus-related racist acts.
The Asian Pacific Policy and Planning Council (A3PCON) along with the Chinese for Affirmative Action (CAA) on Thursday announced the creation of the online reporting center where people can fill out a form - currently available in English, traditional Chinese, simplified Chinese and Korean - to report the location and type of discrimination experienced and other details.
The groups say they plan to use the information to create targeted education and media campaigns, provide resources to those affected and advocate for policies to curb racial profiling. The collected data will also allow the organizations to figure out the scope of discrimination nationwide and determine the best solutions from there, CAA Co-Executive Director Cynthia Choi said.
