On March 16, 2021, eight Asian-American women were killed in a series of mass shootings in Atlanta, Georgia. This attack is a part of the dramatic rise in hate crimes against the AAPI community in the wake of the COVID- 19 pandemic, which has brought with it anti-Asian rhetoric fueled by those who believe that China is responsible for the virus’ spread.

This resource guide aims to provide helpful historical context, statistics, and resources for both the community and its allies to both advocate for the AAPI community and to find safe spaces for support.
