Counter Anti AAPI Hate: Resources for Educators & Communities

Hate and discrimination thrive on false narratives, on “othering” our neighbors.

I’m Your Neighbor Books strives to put new narratives into the hands of American educators, librarians, parents, readers, and citizens.

In the last year Asian Americans reported 3,795+ incidents of hate to the organization Stop AAPI Hate —incidents were 2.3 times greater for women. At least 6 Asian American women lost their lives to this unchecked hatred.

Along with our suggested book collection Counterpoint to Anti AAPI Hate  (gifted to 24 schools and counting…), we offer these gathered resources to enrich and embolden your teaching and community outreach.
