NY Chapter Of National Asian Pacific American Women's Forum Calls For Community-Based Solutions To Anti-Asian Attacks

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- The New York chapter of the National Asian Pacific American Women's Forum held a rally against hate in Manhattan on Saturday.

It took place in Columbus Park on Mulberry Street.

Members of the group are calling on government leaders to address a recent spike in attacks on Asian women with more than just policing.

"We should focus on community-based solutions and not the police, who, for many, increase their feelings of insecurity," said chapter leader Allison Park.

Leaders of Saturday's rally say more funding for services is needed in many Asian communities.
