Bayara Buddy Guards for Chinatown

Bayara Buddy Guards for Chinatown
View the opportunity on Tufts Civic Impact
Throughout the pandemic, the increased frequency of vicious anti-Asian crimes in cities across the United States has left Asian residents in a state of unease. Many elderly residents of Boston’s Chinatown neighborhood were, and still are, afraid to venture in the city by themselves due to the increase in targeted AAPI violence.
To help senior and other at-risk Asian residents around Chinatown to mitigate fear caused by anti-Asian racism, the Asian American Civic Association (AACA) is recruiting volunteers for a newly launched community service program – Bayara Buddy Guards for Chinatown.
Bayara Buddy Guards was created by AACA in response to the alarming rise in anti-Asian hate crimes across the United States over the past few years. As a Buddy Guard volunteer, you will be accompanying senior citizens from their home to the grocery store, to medical appointments, or to any errands they need to run, providing them with protection and a peace of mind.
We are currently looking for more volunteers/Buddy Guards, and if you are interested in volunteering, feel free to reach out for more details. Availability and time commitment is flexible, but you must be based locally in the Boston area.
