Resources on Racial Profiling, and Anti-Asian Violence

"Racial prejudice, war, economic competition and, media stereotypes frequently are the triggers for acts of hate. Many of us remember the intense anti-Japanese sentiment of the 1980's when radio stations sponsored events for angry auto workers to "bash" Japanese-made cars. The widely-touted phrase, "Made in America," took on a sinister anti-Asian undertone. It was during this period of heightened anti-Asian sentiment that Chinese American Vincent Chin was brutally beaten to death in Detroit by two white auto workers who called him "a jap" and blamed him for their unemployment and the recession of the American auto industry."

Asian American Legal Defense & Education Fund (AADEF)
based in New York maintains a hotline on anti-Asian violence incidents and does legal support, education and advocacy on this and other civil rights issues.

National Asian Pacific American Legal Consortium (NAPALC)
has a program to monitor anti-Asian violence and has published a report on the rise of hate-crimes against Asian Pacific Americans between 1998 and 1999.
