Hate and Bias Hotline
April 12 - June 30
The Oregon Department of Justice has opened a Hate and Bias Hotline. Whether it happened to you or to someone else, we can all help track and stop hate and bias incidents by calling the Non-Emergency Hotline at 1-844-924-BIAS (2427) or making a report here.
A hate and bias incident is any hostile expression that may be motivated by another person’s race, color, disability, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
Hate and bias acts can be verbal, physical, or visual. This language and behavior often contributes to, or creates, an unsafe or unwelcoming environment. The act does not have to be a statutory crime.
Examples of an act of hate or bias include:
Name calling; using a racial, ethnic or other slur to identify someone; or using degrading language.
Creating racist or derogatory graffiti or images/drawings.
Imitating someone with a disability, or imitating someone’s cultural norm or practice.
