Why should I report hate?

Reporting is the first step to stopping the hate. By understanding how and where hate is occurring, our communities can respond with appropriate resources and support, including protecting your civil rights against hate and discrimination, processing trauma, beginning to heal, and doing something to prevent hate from happening to others.

It is essential to report a hate incident, which includes any act of verbal or physical aggression, refusal of service, bullying, or intimidation of any kind motivated by hostile prejudice. We cannot do anything to stop hate crimes and incidents unless we know about them so that victims do not suffer in silence. Ready to submit a report? Click here.

Ready to learn more about Social Justice?

Social Justice is linked to the idea of fairness and equality in society. This fairness applies to all aspects of individuals' lives, including their basic human rights and needs. Throughout our nation's history, groups of people have been discriminated against based on skin color, gender identity, sexual orientation, cultural background, and religious beliefs.

Explore Justice - Let's get started by understanding what we mean by Social Justice.

This definition is codified in the California penal code sections 422.55 to 422.95 pertaining to hate crime.
