According to a report by The Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program, on a national level, 46.3 percent of 11,430 offenses that occurred within the single-bias incidents were motivated by racial bias in 2001.                                                     -NewAmericanMedia.org

According to recent reports, hate crime has been decreasing, but hate crimes towards AAPIs have been on the rise.  That’s why you should join OCA at the Student of Color Conference, November 21-23 at UCLA.  They’re hosting a Hate Crimes Awareness Workshop on Saturday the 22nd – prizes and entertaiment included.  Plus, get educated on hate crimes, share your stories, and learn how to stop hate crime.  For more information visit www.studentofcolor.org.
