RACISM IS
CONTAGIOUS

Help us find a cure.

As the COVID-19 virus spreads, Asian Americans have become targets for verbal and physical assaults. Disregarded as anomalistic incidents, many still don’t believe the onslaught being experienced by hundreds, if not thousands, across the country and the globe. With this site, we will provide publicly accessible resources for visualizing the data associated with these attacks to tell our story, encourage those who feel alone to speak, and to help spearhead actionable change.

Act & Address

Empower victims of hate to act and add their voice to the collective movement. Unite and create the change we need.

It’s sad and disturbing how I have to constantly play scenarios of defending myself if I’m ever attacked over and over in my head. I’m afraid that if I go outside by myself it just might happen because of the color of my skin and the size of my eyes. #HATEISAVIRUS


#IAmNotCovid19 #HateIsAVirus Many are still using this time to spread hate, we all seen too many cases of Asian people being targeted/attacked. This selfie is to empower - its not a “us VS them” time, we are ONE! I encourage you to join us, spread love, it’s the only way ❤️❤️

Stay home and don't be racist against Asian folx when you go out. K thanks. #hateisavirus
