If you believe you have been the victim of a hate crime,
- Report the crime to
your local police station immediately. Ask that the
incident be treated as a hate crime. Follow up with investigators. Inform
MPJ even if you believe it is a “small” incident.
- Document the incident.
Write down exactly what was said and/or done by the offender. Save evidence.
- Act quickly. Each incident
must be dealt with when it happens, not when convenient

to be taken. Consider issuing a statement from community leaders,
holding a news conference, organizing a protest, meeting with officials,
or starting a letter writing campaign.
- Mobilize community support.
Contact MPJ and a local mosque
- Stay on top of the situation.
- Announce results.
When the incident is resolved, make an announcement to the same people
and organizations originally contacted.
