The Stop Hate Project was launched in March 2017 to help combat the surge in hate crimes by strengthening the capacity of communities to combat hate. We do so by connecting individuals and organizations with resources in their local communities and develop content to fill identified resource gaps. Below are some of our most frequently used resources that were developed to assist individuals and organizations who are confronted by hate.
- “Targeted by hate?” is a resource that provides steps you should take if you have witnessed or experienced hate. These steps include reaching out if you are injured or fear for your safety, documenting and photographing any physical evidence, getting support in your community, and sharing your story if you are comfortable doing so.
- Hundreds of organizations across the country provide resources, support, and direct services to community members. This map and companion list seek to connect individuals with organizations in their communities. While this map and resource list are not exhaustive, they include over 700 national, state, and local organizations that provide support to diverse communities.
- User-friendly overviews of state and federal hate crime laws. These summaries provide important information on who is protected under the federal and state hate crime laws as well as additional information on relevant civil statutes.
- Interference with Religious Worship: FAQ Guide. Houses of worship have historically been frequent targets of violent hate crimes, arson, and vandalism. In recent years, we have also seen organized armed protests outside of mosques, neo-Nazis protesting across from a synagogue with semi-automatic weapons in Charlottesville, Virginia, and white supremacists standing outside of churches serving congregations of color. This resource was developed to answer frequently asked questions on interference with religious worship.
- Our 844-9-NO-HATE resource hotline is live during weekdays to document hate incidents and connect individuals with local organizations and resources. Individuals may also share their story online at www.communitiesagainsthate.org/report.
