Asian Heritage Month: Stop Asian Hate



Please review our featured collection of books and ebooks in honor of Asian Heritage month. The BMCC community, including the A. Philip Randolph Library, strongly condemns discrimination, harassment, and violence against Asian communities. As an institution we embrace diversity and strive to advance equity and inclusion for all members of our community. In this effort, many of our resources in the featured collection address the history of Asian discrimination in an effort to inform others on the situation. This discrimination is not a new event but has and will always be unacceptable to the BMCC community. We also invite you to look at the resources highlighted below to learn more about this situation and how you can get involved.

The BMCC Library will continue to offer our support to our Asian community and will work to create an environment of awareness and understanding. If you have experienced any type of discrimination or harassment we urge you to report it directly to the Office of Compliance and Diversity by submitting an online complaint form.
