Stop AAPI Hate Received Over 3,700 Reports of Anti-Asian Attacks in One Year

The non-profit released a national report revealing the extent of anti-Asian discrimination.

In March 2020, non-profit Stop AAPI Hate formed in response to xenophobic attacks that Asian Americans began facing at the beginning of the pandemic. Allowing anyone to anonymously submit a hate incident, the organization launched an online reporting center for instances of discrimination and violence. A newly released study reveals that from March 19, 2020 to February 28, 2021, Stop AAPI Hate received a staggering 3,795 reports from residents in all 50 states, revealing the extent to which Asian Americans have been affected by racist rhetoric spouted by Donald Trump, among others.

Of the 3,795 reports Stop AAPI Hate received, 68.1 percent detailed verbal harassment and 20.5 percent described shunning (the deliberate avoidance of Asian Americans). 11.1 percent of reports concerned physical assault. Women reported hate incidents 2.3 times more than men, and Chinese individuals made up the largest percentage of reports (42.2 percent), followed by Koreans (14.8), Vietnamese (8.5) and Filipinos (7.8).

503 incidents took place during the first two months of 2021 alone. “Hate incidents are not abating,” said Stop AAPI Hate co-founder Russell Jeung, who is also a professor of Asian American Studies at San Francisco State University. “We cannot let anti-Asian American hate be a legacy of COVID-19 or the last presidential administration, but that’s exactly what will happen unless we demand concrete action.”

Head to the Stop AAPI Hate website to read its full report and submit a hate incident.
