Resources to fight anti-East, Southeast Asian & Pacific Islander racism

At NüVoices, we are an international collective of creators and researchers devoted to celebrating the diverse work of women and non-binary voices on greater China (broadly defined).

We’re horrified and heartbroken by the latest spate of attacks against East Asian, Southeast Asians and Pacific Islander people across the world, particularly cases of violence against women, gender minorities and the most vulnerable among us.

Members of NüVoices are collecting and sharing resources for taking part in anti-racism efforts.

We will continuously add to this list. Please contact us to provide feedback or to share more resources and suggestions. We’re looking for a translator to convert this document into simplified or traditional Chinese.
