On March 18, 2021, the House Judiciary Committee – Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties held a hearing on Asian American Discrimination and Violence. The National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum submitted two testimonies.

One was signed by 130 other organizations calling attention to this country’s long history with anti-Asian violence and its disproportionate impact on women. The second testimony calls on Congress to take action to provide holistic and interagency responses to the rise in harassment and violence targeting Asian Americans and make investments in communities of color to support true community safety.
