Facts About Anti-Asian Hate

According to Stop AAPI Hate, reports of anti-Asian hate increased from 3,795 to 6,603 during March 2021. The Asian Pacific Planning and Policy Council (A3PCON), Chinese for Affirmative Action (CAA), and Asian American Studies Department of San Francisco State University launched the Stop AAPI Hate reporting center on March 19, 2020.

The center tracks and responds to incidents of hate, violence, harassment, discrimination, shunning, and child bullying against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States. Our approach recognizes that in order to effectively address anti-Asian racism we must work to end all forms of structural racism leveled at Black, Indigenous, and other communities of color.

A recent Stop AAPI National Report shows a large portion of anti-Asian incident reports come from public streets, parks, and businesses. More than 80% of the reports are for verbal mistreatment. Others included reports of physical or online abuse. Some reports included claims of civil rights violations. Furthermore, more than two-thirds of reports come from Asian women. Chinese individuals reported more hate incidents than other Asian ethnic groups, followed by Koreans, Filipinx, and Vietnamese. California is among the top twenty states for reports of anti-Asian hate incidents.
