Report COVID-19 Racism

Across the United States, there has been a spike in incidences of racial harassment and violence (hate-crimes) related to the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to report and track cases of racial harassment and violence, a coalition of Austin/Travis-county organizations including Austin Asian Community Health Initiative (AACHI) and University of Texas Center for Asian American Center and City Departments including Austin Public Health, Equity Office, Asian American Resource Center, and Austin History Center has developed the following incident report.

This incident report aligns with a national one used by Asian Pacific Policy & Planning Council (A3PCON) to track cases across the country. Please share this report widely. Tracking local incidents of racial harassment can help inform how the coalition can respond to prevent future incidents from happening.
