We're keeping the Asian American Pacific Islander community in our thoughts as news of a shooting in Georgia surfaced this week. As ​USA Todayreports, "the shooting comes amid a recent spike in incidents of hate, discrimination and violence against Asian Americans during the COVID-19 pandemic."

Here are some ways that you can show solidarity — many of which are important to keep in mind year-round:

Donate to Heart of Dinner, a volunteer-led organization that "works to fight food insecurity and isolation experienced by Asian American seniors."

Report an incident or donate to Stop AAPI Hate, created by the Asian Pacific Planning and Policy Council (A3PCON), Chinese for Affirmative Action (CAA), and the Asian American Studies Department of San Francisco State University.

Donate to this campaign created by Asian Americans Advancing Justice, Atlanta, "to help the victims and their families impacted."

Follow and donate to @hateisavirus, a "community of mobilizers and amplifiers dedicated to dismantling racism and other forms of hate."

Sign up for the Asian Americans Advancing Justice and Hollaback! bystander intervention training focused on anti-Asian American/xenophobic harassment.

Follow and donate to the National Asian Pacific American Women's Forum and follow @napawf_atl.
