We hope you will Take Action Now by sending us any updated information about hate crime cases we report, and by combatting hate through your donation. Please tell us of any hate crime incident we may not have reported and its outcome; and, please, if you have witnessed or have information about a hate crime, report it to your local law enforcement agency. While visiting us, remember that hatred exists because people—good people—fail either to take steps, even small steps, to prevent acts of hate from happening, or they fail to stop or report acts of hate that they have witnessed. As Albert Einstein once said, "The world is a dangerous place to live not because of the people who are evil but because of the people who don't do anything about it."
We have three messages of hope at Trends in Hate:
* Compassionate people outnumber those who hate.
* Good people can be empowered to take action to stop and to prevent acts of hate.
* People can and do abandon their hateful ways of thinking and acting.
