Incidents of Coronavirus-Related Discrimination (March 19 - April 15, 2020)   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "This report reviews 1,497 reports of coronavirus discrimination submitted on the CAA [Chinese for Affirmative Action]/A3PCON [Asian Pacific Policy and Planning Council] STOP AAPI [Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders] HATE website from March 19 - April 15, 2020. The following patterns emerged over the course of one month: [1] STOP AAPI HATE received 1,497 reports in its first four weeks. [2] Incidents from California and New York constituted over 58% of all reports. [3] Civil rights violations involving workplace discrimination and being barred from businesses and transportation or refused service made up almost ten percent of all incident reports. [4] Forty-four percent of incidents took place at private businesses. [5] AAPI women were harassed 2.3 times more than AAPI men. [6] Nine percent of respondents were AAPI seniors (over the age of 60). [7] Reports came from 45 states across the nation and Washington DC. [8] 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."
