In August 2021, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) released Hate Crime Statistics 2020, an annual compilation of bias-motivated incidents in the United States. The overall number of reported incidents increased by 949, contributing to a total of 8,263 hate crime incidents against 11,126 victims in 2020. While annual law enforcement agency participation may fluctuate, the statistics indicate that hate crimes remain a concern for communities across the country.  

Agencies reported 5,227 race/ethnicity/ancestry-based incidents in 2020, a 32% increase from 2019. Anti-Black or African American hate crimes continue to be the largest bias incident victim category, with 2,871 incidents in 2020, a 49% increase since 2019. Additionally, there were 279 anti-Asian incidents reported in 2020, a 77% increase since 2019. The other largest categories of hate crimes include anti-Hispanic or Latino incidents, with 517, and anti-White incidents, with 869 in total. 

In partnership with the Cincinnati Regional Coalition Against Hate (CRCAH), join us for a meaningful conversation exploring the climate and social realities of hate. The remarkable panel of thought-leaders include:

  • Karen Elam, Executive Director of the Levine Center to End Hate at the Jewish Federation of Greater Rochester
  • Ebunoluwa (Ebun) Taiwo, Assistant United States Attorney based in Cincinnati
  • Patrice ONeill, filmmaker and CEO of the Oakland-based non-profit strategic media company The Working Group and leader of Not in Our Town, a movement of people across the country working to build safe, inclusive communities for all
