    Inspired by South Asian youth sharing their stories of sexual assault and gender-based violence, the Commission and Public Artist in Residence Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya launched "May We Know Our Own Strength" to give survivors a place to heal and find catharsis through honest disclosure.

Bystander Intervention

    In response to the unprecedented climate of anti-Asian bias, discrimination, and harassment connected to COVID-19 stigma, the Commission has invested in multilingual bystander intervention trainings to equip New Yorkers with tools on how to safely intervene in acts of bias, discrimination and harassment.
