("Say No to Hate")

What is a Hate Crime?

"A hate crime, also known as a bias crime, is a criminal offense committed against a person, property, or society that is motivated, in whole or in part, by the offender’s bias against a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, or ethnicity/national origin." ("Reported Hate")

     Hate crime victims are targeted for various reasons like race, religion, homosexuality, gender, or for any other detail that makes them different from their offenders. Even the smallest of characteristics, such as hair color or wearing glasses, can result in someone being the victim of a serious crime. Hate crimes themselves occur because of the lack of tolerance which turns into hate strong enough to move people to verbal and physical forms of abuse.
