At a time when minorities in the US are experiencing an unprecedented rise in hate-fueled crimes, a nonprofit group is aiming to provide a voice.

Civil and human rights nonprofit Asian Americans Advancing Justice (AAAJ) recently launched a website to keep tabs on Anti-Asian hate crimes, according to Huffington Post.

“We cannot stay silent when our communities become victims of hate speech or harassment.”  AAAJ president and executive director Mee Moua said in a press statement.

The group took action after seeing a spike of violent hate crimes towards Chinese and Asian-Americans in different parts of the United States.
