There is new incident reporting form for racism as related to COVID19. This is a collaborative effort between the Austin Asian Community Health Initiative (AACHI), the University of Texas at Austin Center for Asian American Studies, and City of Austin entities, including Austin Public Health, the Equity Office, Parks and Recreation department’s Asian American Resource Center, and Austin Public Library’s Austin History Center. The information is gathered and analyzed by AACHI, UT and APH. All three are promoting it on their website.
Please feel free to share the incident reporting link: http://www.austintexas.gov/page/report-covid-19-racism
AACHI will follow up with folks to provide mental health/resources referrals as needed. So far, we have four cases and it crosses all races – Asian, Black, Latin X, and Native American.
If you know of other mental health professional who would like to lend hand, please have them register here: https://aachi.org/report-racism.html
AACHI is compiling this list and will use it for referrals.
