As we reel from the March 16th Atlanta shootings, we’re reminded that anti-Asian racism continues to rise in the U.S. In fact, the Stop AAPI Hate coalition reported that they have received at least 3,795* complaints of racism and discrimination from Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders since last year.

Now is the time to come together to #StopAsianHate. In the spirit of self-education and reflection, Red Door’s own Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee has compiled a list of educational resources and ways to support the AAPI community.
