Two Harvard University Ph.D. students have created a crowdsourced map displaying anti-Asian aggression in Boston and New York amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The map, which was created by Boram Lee and Ja Young Choi using Google “My Maps,” shows more than 40 markers that represent verbal and/or physical aggression towards Asian Americans in Boston and New York, according to Boston Globe.
