The Rise of Anti-Asian Violence: A Conversation

Introduction by: John Liu, NY State Senator

Joo Han, SIPA Professor & Programs Director of the Asian American Federation (AAF)

Since the pandemic’s start, hate crimes against Asian Americans have spiked over 1900%. These incidents often target grandmothers, young children, and other vulnerable Asian Americans, yet many of these incidents have not been classified as racial hate crimes. According to Stop AAPI Hate, in the last 11 months, there were over 2,800 reports of anti-Asian hate crimes. This doesn’t even include cases that go unreported out of fear or language barriers.

This event is organized by the Asia Pacific Affairs Council (APAC) and cosponsored by the Weatherhead East Asian Institute at Columbia University.
