Stop Asian Hate

We are deeply saddened by the violence in Georgia that has taken eight lives, six of whom were Asian American women. We mourn with the families of these victims. 

We are horrified and continue to be concerned for the safety of our Asian American community members as violence towards this community continues to grow. As an organization that works predominantly with women in communities of color, we must lift up the fact that anti-Asian hate and violence disproportionately impacts women. 

Women have reported twice as many anti-Asian hate incidents as men. More than 68 percent of reported incidents of anti-Asian harassment and violence have been against women. 

This is unacceptable. HealthConnect One stands in solidarity with the AAPI community and calls for an end to violence against them. 

Here are some websites to learn more and get involved in fighting AAPI hate.
