There have been some unconfirmed reports of harassment, intimidation and violence targeted against South Asians, particularly Sikhs, Bangladeshis and Pakistanis in the New York Metropolitan Area.
All incidents should be reported to Sinyen Ling, who handles anti-Asian violence for the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund. The number is 212-760-9110 or 212-966-5932. Incidents can also be reported via email to: email@example.com.
All information will be kept confidential and in the custody of attorneys. It is very helpful to report as much specificity about the incident as possible, such as the name and ethnicity of the victim, what happened, what was said, done, thrown, where the incident occurred, time of the incident, and description of the assailants.
For more information contact AALDEF at 212-760-9110 or 212-966-5932.
