Two Harvard Ph.D. students, Ja Young Choi and Boram Lee, created a crowdsourced map to track instances of anti-Asian aggression amid the coronavirus pandemic last week.

The “COVID-19 Racial Aggression” map, powered by Google My Maps, enables users to input descriptions and locations of instances of anti-Asian discrimination across the country.

The entries are split into three categories: verbal aggression, physical aggression, and vandalism.

Around Harvard’s campus, there were verbal aggression incidents logged around Harvard Square, the Cambridge Common, the Science Center Plaza, and Massachusetts Avenue.

Lee, a Ph.D. candidate in government, said she was inspired to create this map after experiencing racial verbal aggression for the first time in her six years in Cambridge.
