Pacific community included in anti-Asian violence measures
Washington, D.C. — The Biden administration has announced measures to respond to rising anti-Asian violence in the United States.
The measures also aim to advance safety, inclusion, and belonging for all Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander communities.
They include about 50-million-US-dollars from Covid-19 relief funds for community programs which help victims.
The White House says the Department of Justice is also focusing on a rising number of hate crimes targeting Pacific Islanders.
