Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic through 2021, there have been almost 11,000 hate incidents reported in the U.S., according to Stop AAPI Hate, a national coalition that tracks these racially motivated attacks. 

.... To help curb the violence against women and other vulnerable groups, Stop AAPI Hate is supporting three pieces of proposed California legislation that frame harassment and violence as a public health issue.

... Finally, the third bill, AB 2448, introduced by State Assemblymember Phil Ting (D-San Francisco) would develop training that large businesses can use to teach employees how to recognize, report, and respond to discrimination and harassment against customers. Large businesses would also post signage that notifies customers of their rights to be free from harassment and discrimination.
