"In response to the alarming escalation in xenophobia and bigotry resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Asian Pacific Planning and Policy Council (A3PCON), Chinese for Affirmative Action (CAA), and the Asian American Studies Department of San Francisco State University launched the Stop AAPI Hate reporting center on March 19, 2020. The center tracks and responds to incidents of hate, violence, harassment, discrimination, shunning, and child bullying against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States."

Subtle Asian Mental Health FB Community
“Our hope for this group is to reach as many Asians struggling with mental health, cultural issues, inter-generational trauma, and associated problems as possible. We want Asians to realize they are not alone in their struggles and experiences and that there are others who are here to provide support. Mental health is a growing issue among global Asian diaspora communities, but as Asians we tend to be brought up to not talk about it or even acknowledge our psychological problems. We want to be a part of the generation that changes that, and we hope you’ll come along with us for this journey."

"The Laundromat is a documentary about many of these issues of silence, shame, and cyclical family dynamics, but just as important, The Laundromat is a name for the safe space I hope to create with this movie. I hope the film can be used as a jumping off point for reflection on one’s upbringing and the culture of the community you live in. Sometimes all one needs to begin this process is some breathing room, some emotional safety and a push in the right direction."
