Support the NO HATE Act

Hate crimes and incidents are surging across the country, particularly against Asian Americans. Yet 86 percent of law enforcement agencies reported zero hate crimes in 2019, and many other agencies did not report at all. Accurate, consistent reporting allows the government, as well as local nonprofits, to know where, when, and how to provide community resources in response to hate crimes. In April 2021, the Senate passed the COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act (S 973), which included the bipartisan Khalid Jabara and Heather Heyer NO HATE Act as an amendment. The NO HATE Act would improve hate crimes reporting and expand assistance and resources for victims of hate crimes; the COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act would direct the Department of Justice to expedite the review of hate crimes related to COVID-19 and increase resources available to communities impacted by pandemic-related hate crimes. Now the House must take action.
