U.S. Attorney’s Office shares resources for reporting anti-Asian hate incidents

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – During the month of May, the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of California (SDCA) joined in commemorating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month.

“Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are an important part of our country, our community, and our office,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Randy S. Grossman who joined Good Morning San Diego to share resources for reporting anti-Asian hate incidents. “They contribute to all aspects of our society and have a strong tradition of leadership, strength, and courage.”

“This last year we have seen a significant rise in anti-Asian hate incidents across the country, including in our community. Hate crimes and acts of bigotry and xenophobia are disgraceful and have no place in the Southern District of California,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Grossman. “My office condemns such acts of violence and remains committed to ensuring that the AAPI community is protected by holding accountable perpetrators of crimes fueled by hate, and our federal, state and local law enforcement partners hold the same commitment.”
