UW Combined Fund Drive

Resources to Support the AANHPI Community

The UW Combined Fund Drive stands in solidarity with the Asian, Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) community. We recognize and support the struggle of AANHPI people to be seen, respected, heard and protected, and denounce all forms of discrimination, harassment, and racialized violence against AANHPI people.

Report incidents of hate and bias

  • Report Bias Incidents at UW: Report all incidents of bias or suspected bias using the UW’s bias reporting tool, which was created in partnership with the Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity, the Office of Student Life and the president’s Race & Equity Initiative.
  • Stop AAPI Hate tracks and responds to incidents of hate, violence, harassment, discrimination, shunning, and child bullying against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States.

Media Coverage


The beauty of anti-racism is that you don’t have to pretend to be free of racism to be an anti-racist. Anti-racism is the commitment to fight racism wherever you find it, including in yourself. And it’s the only way forward.
