SFPA condemns Racial Violence and Harassment

03/24/2021 5:27 PM | Amy McGuigan (Administrator)

The San Francisco Paralegal Association would like to take a moment to address and condemn the racial violence and harassment against the AAPI community.  One of the great things about living in the Bay Area is the diverse population and culture we have.  More than 3,700 anti-Asian hate crime incidents have been reported to the advocacy group Stop AAPI Hate since the pandemic began. Sadly, these are just the reported incidents, there are probably much, much more.  One recent study, done by CSU Santa Barbara,  based on police department statistics across major US cities found a 150% surge in anti-Asian hate crimes in 2020. Separate data from the Asian Pacific Policy and Planning Council showed over 2,800 firsthand accounts of anti-Asian hate between March and December of last year.  The Asian-American population in the Bay Area is one of the largest in the United States, and we hope you will help us take a stand against this violence and hatred.
