At the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Care Fair on May 15, 2021, we donated 5,850 self-defense devices: 3,000 personal alarms, 1,500 pepper sprays, 1,000 whistles, and 350 kubotans to community members. We also gave out over 10,000 face masks.
Other services included hepatitis B education and testing, hypertension screening, a self defense course, voter registration, COVID vaccine sign-ups, and sign-ups for volunteering with community organizations.
