About the Report 關於報告

Upon completing the survey, all participants were provided with bilingual mental wellness resources on how to respond to and heal from incidents of anti-Asian hate and racism.
- 1 in 7 of the 315 respondents (23%) have personally experienced an anti-Asian racism incident.
- Women are 13% more likely than men to be victims of anti-Asian racism.
- 44% of respondents believed the incident of racism was a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
- The most common form of racism incident is racial slurs/name calling, with 63% of those who reported said that they have experienced verbal assaults such as being called “Chinese Virus” or told to “go back to China”.
