Racial Equity and Inclusion

The 2017 FBI Hate Crimes Report shows a continued increase in hate crimes against AAPIs. Anti-Asian incidents have increased over the last few years and anti-NHPI incident have increased fifty-six percent in 2017. However, due to systemic underreporting, the reality for AAPIs is not accurately represented by this data. Since OCA’s founding, we have fought tirelessly against anti-AAPI hate crimes. OCA continues to work on the ground to foster a stronger society in which our community feels safer. OCA demands an end to racial profiling which has caused fear in our community and prevents individuals from leading their daily lives.

Priorities:

  • Better tracking and reporting of hate crimes towards AAPIs

  • Content moderation on hate speech and language discrimination

  • Prohibit any profiling based on race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or gender identity

  • Implementation of programs that support workforce diversity
