Stop AAPI Hate | 2 Years and 1000s of Voices: What Community-Generated Data Tells Us About Anti-AAPI Hate

Chinese for Affirmative Action, AAPI Equity Alliance (formerly the Asian Pacific Policy & Planning Council), and San Francisco State University’s Asian American Studies Department launched the Stop AAPI Hate reporting center on March 19, 2020.  

The report looks at the nearly 11,500 hate acts reported to the Stop AAPI Hate reporting center between March 19, 2020 and March 31, 2022, and includes findings from a 2021 national survey Stop AAPI Hate conducted in partnership with Edelman Data & Intelligence.

Key findings of Two Years and Thousands of Voices include:

  • Non-criminal incidents comprise the vast majority of the harmful hate acts that AAPI community members experience. 
  • Harassment is a major problem. Two in three (67%) of nearly 11,500 incidents involved harassment, such as verbal or written hate speech or inappropriate gestures.
  • AAPI individuals who are also female, non-binary, LGBTQIA+, and/or elderly experience hate acts that target them for more than one of their identities at once.
  • One in three (32%) parents who participated in the Stop AAPI Hate/Edelman Data & Intelligence survey were concerned about their child being a victim of anti-AAPI hate or discrimination in unsupervised spaces and on the way to school.
  • Hate happens everywhere — in both large cities and small towns, in AAPI enclaves and in places where AAPI communities are few and far between.

The report also lays out Stop AAPI Hate’s approach to addressing anti-AAPI hate: education equity, community-driven safety solutions and civil rights expansion.
