1. Report a hate crime in your community
Newly released FBI data showed hate crimes in the U.S. jumped 17 percent in 2017 with a 37 percent spike in crimes targeting Jews and Jewish institutions. Educate yourself on the many  hate symbols by reviewing our Hate Symbols Database and report a Hate Crime or Bias-Related incident in your area.


2. Connect with your regional ADL office
You can find ADL in your community or nearby. Often our national programs begin at the local level, which serves as an incubator for our best ideas. Find your regional office here. We encourage you to reach out to discover more about what your ADL is doing to make your community respectful and inclusive — and how you can get involved. We educate teachers and students against bullying and bias, and we work with community leaders and train law enforcement personnel to understand and combat hate crimes and discrimination. Or, share our educational resources with Educators and Administrators at your school.
