A Note on Hate Crimes

For too long, people have ignored what is yelled, erased what has been written, and hidden what has happened. Hate crimes happen here. People feel unsafe here. People are afraid to come out here. Hate crimes are not isolated activities, they are glaring reminders of the larger campus climate that they are products are. 

So the next time something happens, report it. It is much easier to confront issues when there is concrete evidence of their existence. Even if you think it’s nothing, just something done in anger or drunkenness, please report it.

 

How to report a hate crime:

- Call security: (786) 6254

- Report it anonymously online:   http://www.bates.edu/x57504.xml

- Tell your RC

 

 

 

 

 

I would like to thank the Dean of Student’s Office and the Hate Crime/Bias Incident Committee for their support in producing and distributing this Anthology.
