California Assemblymember Rebecca Bauer-Kahan, D-Orinda, will co-host a virtual bystander intervention training, from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, in conjunction with Asian Americans Advancing Justice and Asian Law Caucus.

Asian and Pacific Islander Americans have been the victims in an increasing number of attacks the past year.

Bauer-Kahn, who represents the 16th Assembly District., released a statement recently saying, "The increasing amount of hate crimes against the AAPI community is unacceptable. We can't just condemn these horrific acts; we must do what we can to stop them."

The training is meant to teach people what to look for, how to respond, and how bystander information has a positive impact on individuals and communities. People of all ages are encouraged to join. The session has limited capacity, and organizers are asking people to RSVP online at to receive an access link from the Asian Law Caucus.
