The World: ‘How to Report a Hate Crime’ booklets empower Asian Americans amid rise in discrimination

The World: ‘How to Report a Hate Crime’ booklets empower Asian Americans amid rise in discrimination. “From the kitchen counter of her parent’s house, where she was quarantining last spring, [Esther] Lim created free booklets aptly called ‘How to Report a Hate Crime.’ In about 15 pages, readers learn what to do and who to call if they are a victim. The booklets have now been translated into nine languages, including Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese and Korean. Lim says she has plans for expansion to reach other vulnerable communities, but over the past year, the booklets have mostly been distributed to elderly Asians across the US.”
