Reporting Coronavirus Anti-Asian Racism Incidents

Reporting Coronavirus Anti-Asian Racism Incidents

With Coronavirus anti-Asian racism incidents on the rise, such is this virus-inspired robbery in New York City, a website has been launched to document such incidents.  The Stop API Hate website will be used to record incidents for pushing for stronger protections, develop education material, and provide resources for victims.

“We are currently providing support to a child who had to go to the emergency room after he was assaulted and accused by bullies of having the coronavirus, and so that tells us we may need to work with schools to address shunning and school bullying but we need to know how widespread it is,” said Manjusha Kulkarni, executive director of Asian Pacific Policy and Planning Council (A3PICON), which along with Chinese for Affirmative Action, and the Asian American studies department of San Francisco state, set up the web site.

The reporting page can be found here, and contains links to forms for reporting incidents in English and a number of different Asian languages.
