AAPI Solidarity and Response Resources

Created on

Trivers stands with the Asian American Pacific Islander Community – our employees, our collaborators, our contractors, our friends, our family, and our neighbors – and condemn all acts of discrimination and the increased acts of violence against them within the last year and most recently in Atlanta . We stand in solidarity with the AAPI Community against the increasing anti-Asian rhetoric.

We recommit to our pledge to “do one thing” to educate ourselves and take action for justice. We charge ourselves with the task of understanding how we arrived at this incident not as an isolated act of hate but as a result of centuries of anti-Asian bias. As part of our ongoing commitment to anti-racism work, we have compiled a list of resources for education and activism. There is a lot of work to be done. “Do One Thing” is our call to action for our employees and those in our networks to be allies today and always.

This list is a living document, and we welcome new ideas and resources. Email social@trivers.com if you have something to share.
