New York Hate Crimes and Biases: Know Your Rights
Governor Andrew Cuomo launched a free hotline to report incidents of bias and discrimination in New York. The hotline will bolster the state’s efforts to protect New Yorkers and allow those who are the victim of prejudice to file a complaint with the Division of Human Rights. Following an uptick in recent reports of discrimination, bias-motivated threats, harassment and violence, the Governor also announced multi-agency investigations into alleged hate crimes across New York. The Governor is also sending a letter to the State Education Department requesting schools hold trainings to combat intolerance and safeguard New York’s students.
Get the “5-Things You Should Know” Fact Sheet on Discriminatory Harassment (in English or Spanish) HERE.
New Yorkers who have experienced bias or discrimination are encouraged to call the New York State’s Division of Human Rights toll-free hotline at (888) 392-3644 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday – Friday.
If you want to report a crime or fear for your safety, call 9-1-1 immediately.
Under New York City law, discriminatory harassment, which includes threats, intimidation, harassment, coercion or violence that interferes with a person’s civil or constitutional rights; and is motivated in part by that person’s actual or perceived race, creed, color, national origin, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability, or alienage or citizenship status or other protected status, is illegal.
