Position and Statements on Hate Crime
You have the right to live free from harassment, as does any other person in this country. Laws exist to protect all people regardless of immigration status, race, religion, disability, transgender or sexual orientation.
Many hate crimes go unreported because people do not always report it. Victims may feel embarrassed. They may be scared they will be attacked again or they are worried at how they will be treated by the Police. If you are witness to or a victim of crime, contact the Police.
