Since COVID-19 became news in the United States, hate speech and violence against the AAPI community has been widespread. Unfortunately, many of these incidents are not being reported and many are invisible to major media outlets. We hope to change this by offering outlets that anyone is able to use. Below you'll find resources that CMAA has gathered to help individuals report, educate, take action, donate, and more. Please join us in taking action in whatever way works for you.

CMAA AAPI Fund Donation

CMAA has been working tirelessly throughout the pandemic to provide emergency and necessary resources to our low-income, immigrant and refugee community in the Uptown area. We would appreciate your support through a monetary donation to help us continue providing imperative services.
