By Martimeano VillaReports provided by Stop AAPI Hate and the Stop AAPI Hate Youth Campaign have demonstrated a statistical increase in racist discriminatory actions against Asian Americans.
These transcribed interviews provide detailed accounts from Asian youth who, during this summer, have dealt with rising racial discrimination.
The Stop AAPI Hate report, analyzes 341 incidents of anti-Asian discrimination involving youth to the Stop AAPI Hate reporting center from March 19-July 22, 2020.
The Youth Campaign’s report, and its more than 990 interviews, provided varying statistics for Asian American youth, with eight of 10 Asian American youth (77 percent) expressing extreme frustration toward the growing anti-Asian sentiment rising within the country.
Stop AAPI Hate and individuals like Dr. Russell Jeung remain hopeful that by implementing these recommendations, Asian American Youth may be given a voice.
