Two Years and Thousands of Voices: What Community-Generated Data Tells Us About Anti-AAPI Hate
Stop AAPI Hate’s new report, Two Years and Thousands of Voices, makes clear that if you’re just following news stories, you’re not getting the full picture of what AAPIs are experiencing. Showcasing the nearly 11,500 hate incidents reported to Stop AAPI Hate’s reporting center between March 19, 2020 and March 31, 2022.
The report also 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 incidents 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 incidents 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.
