Keywords:COVID-19, Racism, East Asian Community, Community Resilience, Public Health Measures
During the COVID-19 pandemic, racism against East Asians has been detected. The needs for intervention for racism is evident. The Korean American Association of Greater Philadelphia (KAAGP) and Philip Jaisohn Memorial Foundation (PJMF) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, initiated mask masking and donation program to fight against racism while building the public health infrastructure within the broader community. The sustainability of these programs beyond the pandemic depends on the policymakers’ attention to culturally nuanced service delivery.
