Reporting Racist Incidents
- The U.S. Department of Justice encourages the reporting of hate violence to:
- local police, first responders (first and foremost)
- also, to the FBI. Here is a directory of all local field offices and telephone numbers for filing complaints: https://www.fbi.gov/contact-
us/field-offices. DOJ is making sure we have language capacity to receive complaints in a variety of Asian languages.
- Share your story of racist or bigoted acts during this time by following social media guidelines at https://www.WashTheHate.com , a campaign organized by justice and entertainment organizations.
- Report an anti-Asian incident online with AAJC – https://www.standagainsthatred.org/report
