  • Report a Hate Incident
    The AAPI Hate Crimes Reporting Website will help maintain a database of incidents of hate against the AAPI community. This new web tool features a form where victims and advocates can report hate incidents that will be tracked by the OCA National Center. Though users should always report any hate crimes to the law enforcement first, the data tracked from this project will help expose hate incidents and inform community responses.
