“To provide our membership and the greater Asian-American community with resources to help victims of racism and hate crimes, our organization [NAPABA] has created a toolkit of hate-crime resources for attorneys and bar associations developed over a period of months,” [Chang] says.
The toolkit contains a comprehensive definition of hate crimes, information on how to report one, sources of pro bono legal services and community education, statements from other bar associations, and additional resources.
