LEARN TO REPORT A HATE CRIME

People witness to or experiencing bias-motivated threats can report the incidents over the phone at 1-800-994-3228, as well as by filling out a civil rights complaint online to the Attorney General. Potential hate crimes, including bias-motivated assault, battery, and property damage, should also be reported to the local police in the first instance, according to Healey’s office, who encourages people with immediate safety concerns to call 911.
