Week 1 Report

3/25/20 – This report reviews 673 reports of coronavirus discrimination submitted to Stop AAPI Hate’s website from March 19-25, 2020. Even without much publicity, we have already received a strong response from the community, who want their voices to be heard.

Emerging trends include:

  • Almost 100 reports daily, with 5.5% from limited-English speakers.
  • Women are three times more likely to report harassment than men.
  • Asian Americans of different ethnicities are racially profiled; 61% of the reports are from non-Chinese.
  • Verbal harassment and name calling are the most commonly reported type of discrimination, making up over two-thirds of reports.
  • With shelter-in-place policies, Asian Americans are more likely to face coronavirus discrimination in businesses, especially stores, rather than at schools and public transit as previously observed.
