STOP ASIAN HATE

STOP ASIAN HATE

Enough is enough

MP EDITION 073

Anti-Asian violence is by no means new but since the pandemic started, hate speech and violence against the Asian community have significantly increased. Asian Americans and Asians all over the world are facing xenophobia, and racist hate crimes are at an all-time high. There has been an unprecedented number of violent attacks on the Asian elderly over the last few months. 


  • Hate crimes against Asians have jumped 1900% in NYC alone in the last year
  • From March 2020 to February 2021, there have been 3795 reported anti-Asian hate incidents 
  • Asian Americans are the third most racially targeted group following Black Americans and Jewish Americans
  • Anti-Asian hate crimes have spiked by 150% in major U.S cities

Below we have compiled resources for our fellow AAPI and Asians, as well as resources for everyone on how to help combat anti-Asian racism. 

For our fellow AAPI and Asians all around the world:
