Throughout 2020, reports of violence and intimidation toward individuals of Asian and Pacific Islander descent across the U.S. surged to previously unheard-of levels. In Georgia, the deadly spa attack was just one in a series of events raising safety concerns among the state’s Asian American and Pacific Islander community.
Join representatives from the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), the DHS Center for Prevention Programs and Partnerships (DHS CP3), the FBI and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) for a special webinar to explore AAPI community concerns regarding violence towards its members and gaps in hate crimes reporting. Participants will learn more about mitigation methods for protecting shared community spaces, and what do to in an active shooter situation.
Members of organizations, businesses and faith-based groups serving Georgia’s AAPI community are encouraged to attend.
Date: Tuesday, Nov. 16, 2021.
