Safety Planning for Hate Crimes Against the Asian/American Community

Due to recent increases of hate crimes against the Pan-Asian community, it’s understandable if you feel uneasy and/or unsafe in your community.

In these moments, it may be helpful to create a safety plan for yourself and your loved ones. Safety plans enable the individual(s) to protect themselves and to be prepared for high-stress situations.

Safety Planning for Self

Home Safety

Safety Planning for Elders

Safety Planning for Children

Home Safety

This list is not inclusive, and safety plans should be curated towards the individual and their unique situations. See for community alternatives to have in your back pocket.

Practice continuous education for yourself and those around you on the racially unjust system and events that perpetuates violence against Asian Americans.
