AAinAction Applauds OC Elected Officials and Community Leaders for Taking Action to Condemn Anti-Asian Coronovirus Crimes
As communities around the nation kick off Asian Pacific American Heritage month, Asian Americans in Action commends the cities of Irvine and Garden Grove for unanimously approving resolutions that denounce COVID-19 related hate crimes and incidents against Asian Americans. We also applaud the Orange County Board of Supervisors and the Democratic Party of Orange County for passing resolutions condemning such acts.
There were 34 reported cases of coronavirus-related hate incidents against Asian Americans in Orange County from March 19 - April 15, 2020.
Many thanks to our friends at Stop AAPI Hate (a project of Asian Pacific Policy and Planning Council, Chinese for Affirmative Action (CAA), and San Francisco State Asian American Studies) for preparing this summary of reported incidents in Orange County.
