ADL Hate Crime Map

Since 1990, The Hate Crime Statistics Act (HCSA) has required the Justice Department to collect statistics and report annually on hate crimes directed against individuals because of race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, gender or gender identity. Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, dozens of large cities either do not report hate crime data at all – or underreport the data to the FBI. ADL is working with communities across the country to improve their hate crime prevention and reporting.   

This interactive map contains selected HCSA reported data from the FBI from 2004-2016, as well as an aggregation of hate crime laws in the US.

Studies show that knowing the nature and magnitude of the hate crime problem is fundamental for resource allocation and crime deterrence.  More important, targeted communities are much more likely to report crime and cooperate in investigations if they believe law enforcement authorities are ready and able to respond to hate violence.
