After Trump Deemed China Foreign Enemy, Anti-Asian Hate Crimes In LA Surged: Expert

Published in Huffington Post on

One group has launched a hate-tracker to fight against the issue.

An alarming uptick in hate crimes against Asian-Americans has led one nonprofit to take action. 

Asian Americans Advancing Justice (AAAJ), a civil and human rights nonprofit, recently launched, a website to track Anti-Asian hate crimes.

And the rise of this violence towards Asian-Americans is something the group wants to call attention to, stating that awareness is lacking.
