COVID has brought on additional anxiety in the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community who have been unfairly targeted and scapegoated with hate and discrimination. The data from Stop AAPI Hate (stopaapihate.org) shows there are trends around the country from reported incidents in various forms and places. CYC and Beyond Differences are committed to taking a stand against xenophobia with a campaign called #StandUp4AAPIYouth. The campaign will provide educational resources to teachers for their students to learn about accepting cultural differences and to stand up against hate.
