White House Launches Asian American and Pacific Islander Bullying Prevention Task Force

December 4, 2014

The Justice BlogIn a blog post on the Department of Justice Web site, Hines Ward—a retired National Football League player and former member of the President's Advisory Commission on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI)—discusses the impact of bullying in the AAPI community. The blog highlights the launch of the AAPI Bullying Prevention Task Force, a partnership of the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (WHIAAPI) and the U.S. Departments of Justice, Education, and Health and Human Services. This task force will work with the AAPI community to overcome barriers to seeking relief and support, help to analyze bullying data, improve outreach, develop training and toolkits for schools, and increase awareness of federal resources.
