How to Report a Hate Crime Booklet Printing Fund

Hi Everyone,

Thank you for taking the time to visit this page.

I created a 'How to Report a Hate Crime ' booklet in Korean, Chinese, and Japanese for the LA County AAPI Community back in April, but since the article by Josie Huang on LAist  came out yesterday, a lot of people have been reaching out to me on ways they can help contribute financially to the cost of printing and volunteering to translate. I've gotten volunteers to help with the following languages- Thai, Vietnamese, Spanish, and Arabic (so far). 

Printing/shipping cost is hefty and I've already printed out 500 copies each of the Chinese, Japanese, and Korean versions on my own, self funded. I am not seeking to raise money on these first sets that are already printed, but I really do need help funding for the second batch of print production for even more translations. 

1 booklet will cost around $2.25, which includes the cost of shipping from Hong Kong. The cost of booklets to be printed locally in LA ranges from $8-12/booklet.
Once I have the funds and balance languages fully translated, print production will start then, hopefully by the end of October. Actual number of copies will be determined after working with LAC of the needs of each community.

Distribution method details are still in the works.

This is targeted for first generation (1G) immigrants to prepare for racial hate incidents/crimes in lieu of events due to the COVID-19 hysteria caused by the media and President Trump.

Please help to share this with the older adults in your family and community. I know this is lengthy, but it's pertinent information to pass on.

They came here with a dream (the American Dream) to provide the next generation with a better future than they had and that took guts and SACRIFICE.
It's our turn to protect the older generation in our community.

Immigrants should know they have rights as well- LAPD, Department of Homeland Security and Department of Fair Housing and Employment will never ask for a person's immigration status when they are victims or witnesses of any crime, so they should never feel afraid of reporting. Although our President and some Americans are causing harm to the Asian American community, there are laws set up to protect us as well.

*Special Note*
I know some of us may feel a certain way about LAPD, but their numbers are listed at the very top of the contacts page.
Although reporting crimes to non-profits is great, going directly to law enforcement is more effective for immediate action.
They are the ones who dispatch a certain amount of patrol units based on the number of offenses reported in a certain area.
The higher the reports in a certain area, the higher number of patrol officers dispatched to monitor it, so please make sure you emphasize reports be made directly to LAPD. They have translators available 24/7 and are prepared to help.
If in fact local PD does not take in a report or dismisses any incidents, please contact AAJC.
I have added @211lacounty and @losangelescrimestoppers to the contacts page if anyone is afraid of going to local PD directly, who will help make a report.

For our beloved community, let's fight these acts of hate together.

Peace & Blessings,

Esther Young Lim
