Looking back on Anti-Asian Violence, 1994-2002

Between 1994-2002 NAPALC released the only comprehensive, nationwide, non-governmental compilation and analysis of anti-Asian violence in the United States. The electronic versions were made possible by Verizon and are available free of charge.

I always thought they provided a very sobering picture of the situation today, although there were areas where the results could have been improved, including better analysis of the meaning of some of these statistics. Still, it's a good place to start, and for those of us working on anti-violence issues, it's worth a refresher.
