The Racism is a Virus Toolkit

The following toolkit below is one of two projects done in collaboration with the 2020 Conference on Asian
Pacific American Leadership (CAPAL) scholars and interns cohort. The Community Action
Project (CAP) aims to give back and address issues facing the AANHPI community. This
graphic-style toolkit was created to complement the social media campaign to address the rise
of racism and xenophobia in the face of COVID-19. It also provides concrete resources for
AANHPI youth and a starting point for organizing within their communities.
This toolkit was created by CAPAL interns Carolyne Im, Komal Kamdar, and Kathleen Mallari.
