We're collaborating with community partners across the nation to #ReportHate. Launched in response to the rising tide of anti-Arab and anti-Muslim bigotry, and the under-reporting of hate crimes and incidents against our community, #ReportHate establishes working groups in key states consisting of community leaders and organizations from Arab American and allied communities. The Project encourages communities and individuals to work with their elected officials to strengthen hate crime laws and encourage reporting through official avenues.
Hate affects all communities. We are uniting representatives from every impacted community to share their experiences, discuss opportunities for collaboration, and to identify and minimize obstacles to reporting hate crimes. We know hate crimes are consistently underreported—by both victims and reporting agencies. Without a sustained effort to improve reporting we cannot develop a clear understanding of hate crimes in our nation and how to address them.

We currently have working groups in 16 states, with over 100 community partners.
