Anti-Hate Safety Resources

AAF worked with experts from the Center for Anti-Violence Education to develop safety resources that teach members of our community how to defend themselves if faced with anti-Asian violence. The flyers, which are available in English and five Asian languages, provide strategies for individuals to safely intervene if they see someone being targeted. These flyers also teach how to use verbal and/or physical methods to de-escalate threatening situations and to safely exit a hostile situation.
