AAPI is an abbreviation that stands for Asian American and Pacific Islander. AAPI is most commonly used as an adjective, as in the AAPI community or AAPI discrimination. It is sometimes used as a noun (as in I stand in support of my fellow AAPIs), but this is less common. Other terms and abbreviations have been and are used as a short way of referring to this diverse group, but the term AAPI began to be more widely recognized and used in early 2021 in the wake of a significant increase in reports of violence and discrimination against AAPI individuals in the US. Example: Members of the AAPI community have called for an increased focus on addressing the racism that they have faced and continue to face.
