Asian Hate Crime and Hate-Bias Incident Resources

Since the Covid-19 pandemic, hate crimes and hate bias incidents related to coronavirus are rising in the United States. Chinese American and Asian Pacific American communities are targets of verbal harassment, shunning, physical assault, being coughed/spat on, and refusal of service or workplace discrimination due to misconceptions and misinformation about the spread of the virus. 

Stop AAPI Hate is leading national efforts to document and track anti-Asian violence related to the Covid-19 pandemic. Between March and December of 2020, AAPI Hate received 2,808 self-reported incidents of racism and discrimination against Asian Americans. In 2021, cases of stabbing and death have been reported by major news media outlets across New York and California. 

On March 26, 1790, the Naturalization Act was signed into law, prohibiting non-white people from becoming citizens of the United States. Over 200 years later, the Asian community is still suffering from the effects of the racism our country was founded upon. Asian American elders are being physically assaulted in the streets. Asian children are afraid to go back to school. And we’re still reeling from the murders of 6 Asian women in a racially-motivated killing spree in Atlanta last week.

That’s why, on March 26, we’re inviting you to join us for a social media campaign to #StopAsianHate. Ending this horrific spike in hate incidents starts with people like you speaking up about this growing problem.
