Resources and Support for Monterey Park, California

Lunar New Year Rabbit

As the heartbreaking tragedy and loss of life that occurred during the Lunar New Year festivities in Monterey Park, California continues to unfold, we want to provide resources for those looking for ways to support the victims, their families, and the community.

As the Monterey Park community and the larger AAPI community continue to heal, these fundraisers and organizations are helping — whether through monetary aid, victim memorials, or mental health support:

Monterey Park Lunar New Year Victims Fund

This verified GoFundMe page has a monetary goal of $500,000, with all proceeds going directly to the victims of this tragedy. The fundraiser is a joint effort by eight organizations: Asian Americans Advancing Justice Southern California, The Asian American Foundation, Asian Pacific Community Fund, Stop AAPI Hate, Gold House, Stand with Asian Americans, AAPI Equity Alliance, and Chinatown Service Center.

Classroom of Compassion in Monterey Park, CA

Classroom of Compassion, a Los Angeles-based nonprofit that creates beautifully crafted altars for public mourning, is raising funds for altars to honor the victims of the Monterey Park shooting. Donations will go toward resources, supplies, and travel. Once the memorial space is completed, individuals can visit the pop-up site and leave a note or small floral offering.

Stop AAPI Hate

Stop AAPI Hate, created in response to anti-Asian racism exacerbated during the COVID-19 pandemic, not only tracks and responds to incidents of discrimination against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the U.S., but also advocates for policy change on the local, state, and national level.

Have you or someone you know been affected by the mass shooting in Monterey Park? A resource center has been set up at the Langley Senior Citizen Center at 400 W. Emerson Ave.

Asian Mental Health Project will be hosting virtual community healing circles. Sign up here: bit.ly/APIDA-healing
