Stop AAPI Hate operates the nation’s largest reporting center tracking acts of hate against AAPI communities. With the support of respondents acriss the U.S., they have documented thousands of cases of anti-Aisan Hate and anti-Pacific Islander hate.
The California Civil Rights Department received funding and authorization from the State Legislature to establish the non-emergency, CA vs. Hate Resource Line and Network to support individuals and communities targeted for hate.
The goals of CA vs. Hate are to help individuals and communities targeted for hate; identify options for next steps after a hate incident; connect people targeted for hate with culturally competent resources; and to improve hate incident and crime reporting data to enhance hate crimes prevention and response.
You can report anonymously. Whether or not you report anonymously, your identity will not be disclosed. The only exception to non-disclosure is if a report is made of child abuse, elder abuse, or activities indicating an imminent risk of violence, or if required by law.
CA vs. Hate will use the information captured through the portal and network to improve services for people targeted for hate. CRD will also issue regular reports, sharing data about hate incidents and crimes across the state that will not identify individuals targeted for hate or people who report acts of hate. This data will help CRD, other government, and community leaders improve efforts to prevent and respond to hate.
The CA vs. Hate Resource Line is a non-emergency phone number and online portal to connect individuals to resources if they are targeted for hate. To be connected to a care coordinator at the Resource Line call 1-833-8NO-HATE Monday through Friday, 8:00 am – 5:00 pm PST. If you call outside those times, you can leave a message with a request for a return call.
