Make an intentional effort to build awareness and denounce bias.
Support & Resources
With the rise in anti-Asian violence, there is even more urgency about staying informed and taking action to support our Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) friends, colleagues, and communities. We must make intentional efforts to build awareness and denounce bias and discrimination against the AAPI community and all people.
This could mean objecting to words and ideas fueling this hate, reaching out to friends and colleagues, or showing support through action. To support the well-being of our AAPI community and allies, IPG DEI has curated the following resources to help those seeking support, informing individuals who want to learn more and offering resources to those who are unsure how to help.
