Summary

The rise of anti-Asian hate sentiment has precipitated renewed efforts to serve and protect our most vulnerable populations in under-resourced Korean American communities. Stand with us as we commit to #StopAsianHate and uplift Korean Americans with limited access to 1) care for the elderly; 2) mental health/family counseling services, and 3) economic support for undocumented families.

Challenge

Hate crimes against Asian Americans have been steadily on the rise (+150% in 2020 alone) since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Atlanta Spa Shooting was only one of many racially motivated acts of violence committed against Asian Americans, four of whom were Korean American. This project focuses on partnering with local nonprofit organizations to support marginalized members of the Korean American community.

Solution

CKA will identify ten regions across the U.S. with substantial Korean American populations in order to distribute funds to local nonprofits that support Korean Americans who (1) are low-income seniors, (2) assist with mental health & family counseling, or (3) provide aid to undocumented families. Direct aid will be provided to local organizations as they continue to advocate for #StopAsianHate and service the needs of their most vulnerable constituents.

Long-Term Impact

The #StopAsianHate Relief Fund will support nonprofit organizations in their continuing efforts to provide bilingual resources and support services, community engagement through public education, and advocacy campaigns in response to anti-Asian racism. The project's fundraising will also help sustain their long-term mission to ensure racial justice and equality despite the current financial challenges and uncertainties associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.
