A resource guide to supporting the AAPI Community

By Lindsay Wang, AsAmNews Associate Editor

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community has experienced an exponential growth in anti-AAPI hate and violence. Every week, social media feeds are flooded with news reports of assaults and attacks on the elderly, the vulnerable, the unprotected members of our community. 

According to data from California State University San Bernardino, the incidence of reported anti-AAPI hate crimes has risen nearly 150% from 2019 to 2020 while the overall rate of hate crimes dropped by 7%. A recent report from the Pew Research Center revealed that one third of Asian adults said they feared and anticipated threats and physical attacks. Such attacks aren’t purely racial, either — out of nearly 4000 anti-AAPI hate crimes reported to Stop AAPI Hate, 68% were women.

Anti-AAPI hate is not new. There is a long legacy of the exclusion of the AAPI community from what it means to be “American,” often carried out so quietly and insidiously that we fail to notice the lack of our own bodies in the constructed future of this nation. Our histories are erased from the classrooms and the textbooks, and our identities are erased from our own minds and from each other under the weight of the “model minority myth.”

On March 16, a White male drove to three separate spas and massage parlors in Atlanta, Ga. and opened fire, killing eight people, six of whom were Asian women. He claimed that race was not a factor; instead, he had a “sex addiction,” and the only way to “eliminate temptation” was to target the Asian spas he frequented. 

On April 15, a White male drove to a FedEx facility known to employ majority Sikh Americans in Indianapolis, Ind. and opened fire, killing eight people, four of whom were Sikh American. And still, the burden fell upon a mourning community to demand an investigation that considers racial and religious bias.

In the wake of tragedy, we mourn. Then, we wipe our tears and pull ourselves up onto our feet and we fight for a future far, far, far removed from the reality we experience.

We take action.

Below is a list of nonprofits, organizations, foundations and communities that operate nationally and in the 20 states with the largest AAPI populations that you can support.  No list is ever complete. AsAmNews will periodically update this list as resources allow.

Committee of 100

The Committee of 100 (C100) is a non-partisan leadership organization of prominent Chinese Americans in business, government, academia, and the arts. The concept of founding the Committee came from the renowned architect, the late I.M. Pei and Dr. Henry Kissinger, 56th U.S. Secretary of State in 1988. Kissinger discussed with Pei the notion of organizing an influential group of Chinese Americans to address issues of international concern between the United States and China. Pei felt that no single individual could adequately represent the Chinese American perspective. With a sense of urgency to build bridges between China and the United States, Pei teamed with master cellist Yo-Yo MaHenry S. TangOscar TangShirley Young and Chien-Shiung Wu to recruit distinguished Chinese Americans from the arts, business, academia, public service, and the sciences to serve on the Committee of 100.
