About Stop AAPI Hate and Chinese for Affirmative Action 

Stop AAPI Hate is a national coalition of AAPI Equity Alliance, Chinese for Affirmative Action (CAA), and the San Francisco State University Asian American Studies Department. The mission of Stop AAPI Hate is to advance equity, justice, and power by dismantling systemic racism and building a multiracial movement to end anti-Asian American and Pacific Islander hate. 

This is an exciting period of growth and impact for Stop AAPI Hate (SAH). Due to the extraordinary demand and support for our work, we are poised to deepen and expand our reach and engagement throughout the country. This evolution will include the deployment of new strategies, additional programs, and increased staffing.  

Since its launch two years ago, the Stop AAPI Hate online reporting center has documented close to 11,000 hate incidents affecting AAPIs and enabled us to raise awareness and shape conversations around anti-Asian racism.  Our efforts have captured the attention of lawmakers, catalyzed them into action, and spurred a broader movement for progressive change. Going forward, Stop AAPI Hate’s work in research and data, policy advocacy, narrative change, and community capacity building will address core issue areas including education equity and ethnic studies, community safety and resilience, and civil rights and racial justice infrastructure.  

Chinese for Affirmative Action is one of the founding partners of Stop AAPI Hate and also serves as its fiscal sponsor. With a legacy of more than five decades of achievements in civil rights and community progress, CAA continues to be a leader in and on behalf of the broader Asian American community.
