Hate incidents across the United States are surging, devastating individuals and entire communities. Hundreds of organizations in communities across the country work to combat hate every day. To help combat this increase and support those organizations, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law launched the Stop Hate Project.

The Stop Hate Project seeks to strengthen the capacity of community leaders, law enforcement, and organizations around the country to combat hate by connecting these groups with established legal and social services resources.
About the 1-844-9-NO-HATE Hotline
The Lawyers’ Committee has run an Election Protection Hotline for over a decade, providing resources and assistance to callers on Election Day. As part of the Stop Hate Project, Lawyers’ Committee launched a resource and reporting hotline for hate incidents: 1-844-9-NO-HATE.
Individuals and organizations that call the hotline receive resources they need as we leverage our national network of pro bono attorneys, connect callers and victims of hate to community organizations, mental health services, and in appropriate cases, provide access to counsel.
Examples of resources provided have included template letters to make sure undocumented students are admitted to school, support for reaching out to and training law enforcement, and connecting callers with local and national civil rights and service organizations.
