Stop asian hate

We stand together to #StopAsianHate

ILF has been working with law enforcement, federal, state, and local communities to raise awareness about increased racism and discrimination against the AAPI community.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, hate crimes related to coronavirus are rising in the United States. Asian Americans are targets of verbal harassment, shunning, physical assault, being coughed/spat on, and refusal of service or workplace discrimination due to misconceptions and misinformation about the spread of the virus.

What’s Happening
