UCLA RISE Center

At the outset of the pandemic, the Asian/Asian-American community was targeted with violence, unjustly blamed for the spread of the COVID-19 virus. A report issued by the Stop AAPI Hate Reporting Center documented 3,795 cases of anti-Asian incidents from March 2020 through February 2021. Sadly, the violence has continued and in some parts of our nation even increased in recent weeks. The hate has been spread across every age range, with even the elderly and young children being impacted.

RISE stands against anti-Asian hate and violence, not in isolation, but in solidarity with the ongoing hate and violence against Black, Indigenous, Latinx, immigrant, sexual/gender and religious minority communities, and we reaffirm our support to the health, healing, and hope of our community.

CAPS is open during regular business hours, providing all services through telehealth.
24/7 crisis support is always available by phone at 310-825-0768. If you experience or witness an incident of bias, please submit a report here, with the Office of the Dean of Students. Note that this form is not monitored 24/7. If you need immediate support, please call the UCLA Police Department at 310-825-1491 (24/7), or call UCLA Counseling and Psychological Services’ 24-hour access line at (310)825-0768.
