Resources to Address Anti-Asian Racism

AAPCHO acknowledges the increasing levels of stigma, racism, and xenophobia toward AA and NH/PI communities as a result of COVID-19. We encourage community health center providers, community-based organizations, educators, and the general public to combat this stigma by addressing misinformation and practicing cultural humility.

Cultural Humility Resources

Cultural humility is a respectful approach toward individuals of other cultures that continuously pushes one to challenge cultural biases (CHCS, 2017).
