There has been a significant, troubling increase in anti-Asian hate
crimes and bias incidents. The NYC Commission on Human Rights, the
Mayor's Office for the Prevention of Hate Crimes, the Mayor’s Community
Affairs Unit (CAU), and the Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs are
coordinating closely to educate the public about their rights and
protections in light of COVID-19-related stigma and hate crimes.
Asian and Pacific Islander New Yorkers are New Yorkers: You have a
right to live free from discrimination. If you have experienced or
witnessed an act of anti-Asian discrimination, call the NYC Human Rights
Commission at 212-416-0197.
