HEAR OUR VOICES
We honored those individuals we lost on March 16, the one-year anniversary of the Atlanta Spa Shootings. We also lost Michelle Go, Christina Yuna Lee, and GuiYing Ma to senseless killings. The violence against Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islanders (AANHPIs) continue to rise, According to Stop AAPI Hate, "AAPI Women Report More Harassment in Public Spaces." Using 10,152 hate incidents with information about gender (93.1% of all hate incidents), we provide the gender-specific descriptions of hate incidents for AAPI women, AAPI men, and AAPI non-binary people. Non-binary people include individuals who self-identified as gender nonbinary and gender nonconforming. Overall findings: AAPI women report more harassment than AAPI men and AAPI non-binary people AAPI non-binary people report more deliberate avoidance or shunning, being coughed at or spat on, denial of service, and online harassment than AAPI women and men. A higher percentage of hate incidents experienced by AAPI women occurred in public streets compared to AAPI men and AAPI non-binary people. Higher percentages of AAPI women and AAPI non-binary people identified gender/gender identity as one reason for discrimination compared to AAPI men.
It’s time to unite, be in solidarity and create a movement together. Join the conversation with these incredible leaders on March 24 at 3 PM ET on next steps.
