4/23/20 – This report reviews 1,497 reports of coronavirus discrimination submitted on the Stop AAPI Hate from March 19-April 15, 2020.

The following patterns emerged over the course of one month:

  • Stop AAPI Hate received 1,497 reports in its first four weeks.
  • Incidents from California and New York constituted over 58% of all reports.
  • Civil rights violations involving workplace discrimination and being barred from businesses and transportation or refused service made up almost 10% of all incident reports.
  • 44% of incidents took place at private businesses.
  • AAPI women were harassed 2.3 times more than AAPI men.
  • 9% of respondents were AAPI seniors (over the age of 60).
  • Reports came from 45 states across the nation and Washington DC.
  • Even as shelter-in-place policies were implemented across much of the country and AAPIs interacted less with others, the rate of acts of racism remains alarming.
