Content and Campaign Resources
We have updated our content in the wake of the the worst mass killing in the US in two years, which saw white gunman murder eight people in Atlanta, six of them women of Asian descent. This horrific event is the latest in a wave of violence and an upsurge in racism towards AAPI communities across the United States.
The updated resources now include:
- A giving opportunity and news item for the US, Canada and the UK
- Cause recommendations for national US and local Georgia organizations, as well as causes in Canada and the UK, supporting Asian American and Pacific Islander communities, through anti-racist advocacy, legal action, community support and awareness building
- Images sized for Spark and cover story
