A list of information and resources for Asian American communities. For weeks prior to the designation of COVID-19 as a global health pandemic, as pundits, Trump, and media outlets conspired to call it the “China Virus,” Asian American communities are experiencing the same tremendous challenges of the pandemic as healthcare workers, students, essential workers in low-wage and high risk industries, community members, parents, newly unemployed or chronically underemployed, uninsured and with language or status barriers. Here’s a curated list of sources for news, information and other resources that will be updated regularly.
