Responding to Wave of “Ebola Stigma”, African Organization Launches Hotline, Website to Track and Respond to Cases

 

 

A Bronx-based nonprofit organization for African immigrants will launch a new website and hotline for African immigrants who have been targeted for harassment, discrimination, or bullying related to Ebola fears. “We know this is happening, because we hear it from our members,” said Amaha Kassa, Executive Director of African Communities Together. “But until now, there have been few resources for African immigrants who are experiencing it.”
