AAPI Data and Momentive (formerly SurveyMonkey) release results of their annual survey on AANHPI experiences with hate crimes, mental health, and other urgent issues.

The relationship between identifying as a person of color and experiencing discrimination or hate crimes is notably stronger among AAPI individuals, who also show heightened awareness of hate crime threats. Although hate crime experiences among AAPI in early 2022 align with other ethnicities, their concern for victimization remains elevated. While there’s an uptick in trust towards the justice system, apprehensions about reporting hate crimes persist, driven by fears of retaliation and unwanted attention. Notably, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander respondents report a decrease in unfair treatment yet face it more frequently than their Asian American counterparts, reflecting variances in experiences and perceptions within the AAPI community.
