Help stop Asian hate – resources for nonprofits

Julia Claire Campbell Nonprofits Leave a Comment

The deadly mass shootings in Atlanta earlier this week killed eight people – six of them Asian women. Violence against the AAPI (Asians, Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders) community is escalating.

So what can we, as nonprofits, do to help?

I want to highlight some resources for you:

From The Communications Network:

“Here are two ways foundation and nonprofit comms teams can lead now:

Lend Your Influence: Share a statement condemning violence against Asians and Asian Americans and expressing your support for these communities. We’ve started an open crowd-sourced document to collect and share what others are saying. Please use it as a resource if you need it — and add to it if you can.

Lead Inside: Create space internally for your staff to have conversations — and let them know where you stand.”

Thanks for all that you do to make this world a more just and equitable place.
