“My elderly grandmother was chased and almost attacked by a racist man as he was yelling at her to go back to China and Chinatown. The man was about to push my grandmother down a flight of stairs until she begged him not to and was able to run away.” – Woman in California

“I was walking up the stairs to a restaurant in the suburbs and this individual said, ‘Hey, Osama bin Laden.’ I asked him, ‘What did you say?’ and he said, ‘F–k you.’” – Man in Georgia

Anti-Asian and Pacific Islander (AAPI) hate has a long and deep history in the United States. At the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, hate acts against our communities dramatically increased, generating immense fear and pain. Recognizing the need to document the alarming rise of anti-AAPI racism and discrimination, AAPI community leaders and activists launched Stop AAPI Hate as an online reporting center.

Stop AAPI Hate is a coalition founded by Chinese for Affirmative Action, the Asian American Studies Department at San Francisco State University and the AAPI Equity Alliance after they recognized the need to document the rise of Covid-19-related racism and ramp up efforts to address anti-AAPI hate more broadly. In four short years, Stop AAPI Hate has become the nation’s largest reporting center documenting anti-AAPI hate acts and has received more than 11,000 reports. We also leverage our wide-reaching platform to combat racist stereotypes, elevate the diverse experiences of AAPIs, advocate for policies and inspire everyday people to take action against hate.

Today, our work extends beyond pandemic-related hate. Anti-Asian scapegoating and political rhetoric are on the rise, compelling Stop AAPI Hate to ramp up our efforts to tackle not just interpersonal hate but also institutional and societal hate. We’re leveraging data and research, policy and advocacy, strategic communications and community care strategies to fight anti-AAPI hate in all its forms. Our recent work includes:

Stop the Blame, a national campaign dedicated to tackling anti-Asian political scapegoating by confronting the rising tide of racist and xenophobic political rhetoric and policies targeting Asians in America.

An online data visualization tool that boosts access to data from our hate acts reporting center, which includes real-life stories from AAPIs impacted by hate as well as interactive dashboards.

New reports that highlight the diverse forms of hate AAPI communities experience and encourage tailored solutions to combat various types of racism and discrimination.
