5 of the top 7 Consumer Expenditures for Asians are in the Meetings industry (housing, transportation, food, entertainment, education).
Asians spend $1.2 Trillion dollars every year in America.
61.7% of Asian hate crimes occur in meeting locations. 63.3% Asian women have reported hate crimes.
Verbal harassment (63.7%) and shunning (16.5%) — the deliberate avoidance of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders — continue to make up the two largest proportions of the total incidents reported. A majority of incidents are traumatic and harmful, but are not considered hate crimes.
StopAAPIHate has 9,081 documented hate crimes which is a small fraction of the actual. The Atlanta Spa Shooter that killed 6 Asian women has NOT been accused of a hate crime. An Asian is harmed EVERY DAY.
