Stop the Violence Against Asian Americans

The escalation of hate crimes against Asian Americans in the United States demands action.

On behalf of the Friends Committee on National Legislation, I would like to thank members of the House and the Senate for passing The American Rescue Plan. The bill, awaiting signature from President Biden, will have a dramatically positive impact on the lives of people who have been economically devastated by the pandemic and low income households.
