Driven by the lack of reliable data on the number of hate crimes that occur in the U.S., ProPublica, an independent, nonprofit newsroom recently joined with partners to launch Documenting Hate, an initiative that collects stories about bias incidents and hate crimes.
National and local data, user-submitted reports, and social media monitoring will allow journalists and civil rights groups to get a more accurate picture of hate crimes and acts of intimidation--in person and online.
Use the form below to share your story. Your information may be shared with partner newsrooms or civil rights groups who have access to the database.
We are not law enforcement and will not report this information to the police. If you are a victim of a crime, we encourage you to call the police.
Thank you for sharing your story.
