Take Action: Urge Congress to improve hate crime reporting and assistance for victims of hate
Stop sign

According to the FBI, hate crimes increased by an alarming 17 percent in 2017, including a 37 percent rise in hate crimes targeting Jews. By providing federal grants to modernize reporting systems, establish state hotlines, and train law enforcement officers, the Senate’s Khalid Jabara and Heather Heyer NO HATE Act of 2019 (S.2043) and the companion bill in the House (H.R.3545) will promote more accurate data collection and assist victims of hate.

The RAC is a partner of Communities Against Hate, a national initiative to document stories and respond to incidents of violence, threats and property damage motivated by hate in the United States. An historic coalition of diverse national organizations and neighborhood groups, Communities Against Hate provides a safe place for survivors and witnesses to share stories of hate incidents through an online database and telephone hotline.
