Forum Advances Hate Crime Justice

Asian Hall of Fame Forum hosts distinguished leaders

LOS ANGELES, April 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Asian Hall of Fame announces its annual policy Forum taking place throughout Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month in May. The series hosts distinguished leaders and will help guide Asian Hall of Fame's Make Hate Crime A Crimetm initiative launching this year. Previous presenters have included Lifetime Achievement Award Inductee and Congresswoman Judy Chu, Congressman Ted Lieu, among others. The Forum is virtual and free to the public through the Asian Hall of Fame website.

Asian Hall of Fame overcomes anti-Asian bias by developing public awareness of Asian contributions in the United States and the world. Year-round programming advances the Tech & Entertainment Venture, Team Member Fellowships, Brain Injury Endowment, and Make Hate Crime A Crimetm.

Last year's Forum recommended expediting hate crime reporting by adding a hate crime checkbox to crime scene reports similar to past successes in reporting rape and domestic violence. Make Hate Crime A Crimetm proposes to add a hate crime checkbox for expedited reporting.

"78% of hate crime survivors are Asian women. It is unconscionable that violence against Asians continues to escalate in America. Asian Hall of Fame is committed to advancing advocacy as one of its four philanthropic pillars, and turning the tide against hate," said Maki Hsieh, President & CEO.
