Report COVID-19 Racism

Across the United States there has been a spike in incidences of racial harassment and violence (hate-crimes) related to the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to report and track cases of racial harassment and violence, a coalition of Austin/Travis-county organizations has developed the following survey.

This survey aligns with a national one used to track cases across the country. Please share this survey widely. The coalition will follow-up on all reported incidences, and it will seek to provide support to those who need it.

The AARC is calling for submissions for “Share Our Story,” an online series where seniors/older adults share favorite family memories. Staying connected with our families is so important during this "Stay Home, Work Safe" Order that we would love to share stories, recipes, and memories that inspire us during this time.
