Hate Crimes and Incidents on the Rise!
of all reported hate activity in Orange County this year has been COVID-19 related, largely targeting our Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) neighbors. In our last report, compiled for 2018, hate activity targeting this community made up only
of total reports - this past few months has seen an incredible increase!
This is a frightening time for the AAPI community, many are afraid to leave home, unsure of who and what they will encounter. We stand with our Asian American neighbors and encourage you to do the same.
"We Stand Against Hate" signs are available to download, print and post in the windows of your home or car.
