Resources:Two Years and Thousands of Voices: What Community-Generated Data Tells Us About Anti-AAPI Hate

Collectively, the voices of individuals who have reported almost 11,500 incidents to Stop AAPI Hate over the past two years have become a powerful tool.

We now know that the majority of hate incidents, though harmful and traumatic, do not meet the legal definition of a crime, and therefore require solutions beyond law enforcement.

Every individual traumatic incident reported to Stop AAPI Hate reminds us of the urgent need to address systemic racism; our collective voice advocating for solutions is how we will do it.
