There have been numerous reports of harassment, intimidation and
violence targeted against South Asians, particularly Sikh Indians,
Bangladeshis, and Pakistanis in the New York Metropolitan Area, and
across the United States.

All incidents should be reported to Sinyen Ling, who handles anti-Asian
violence for the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund. The
number is 212-760-9110 or 212-966-5932. Incidents can also be reported
via email to: sling@aaldef.org.

All information will be kept confidential and in the custody of
attorneys. It is very helpful to report as much specificity about the
incident as possible, such as the name and ethnicity of the victim, what
happened, what was said, done, thrown, where the incident occurred, time
of the incident, and description of the assailants.

Victims may also arrange for private, confidential meetings with AALDEF
attorneys to report such incidents of hate violence and anti-immigrant
harassment or to seek legal counseling on Saturday, September 15 at
AALDEF's midtown office.

The office is located at 151 West 30th Street, 10th floor, near 7th
Avenue. (#1/9 2/3 trains to 34th Street/Penn Station OR B/D/Q/F W/S N/R
trains to 34th Street/Herald Square). Please call 212-760-9110 in
advance to set up an appointment.

For more information contact AALDEF at 212-760-9110 or 212-966-5932.
