By: Portland United Against Hate Communications Team
Portland United Against Hate, a community coalition in partnership with the City of Portland’s Office of Community & Civic Life, is piloting a system to document hate/bias incidents. This system will allow us to have a more comprehensive understanding of the effects of hate violence in Portland and to provide support to those targeted by hate violence.
We know that the communities most likely to be targets of hate violence are also the least likely to report their experiences to law enforcement. This hate & bias tool is working to meet the need for a supportive, accurate, and culturally-appropriate documentation process that enables those most impacted to be able to report hate incidents in a trusted manner.
If you believe you have experienced or witnessed a hate/bias incident you can report it to Portland United Against Hate by contacting SE Uplift, going to reporthatepdx.com, as well as through our partner orgs: Latino Network, Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon, Unite Oregon, African Youth and Community Organization, Lewis and Clark Community Counseling Center, POIC+RAHS, Q Center, Lutheran Community Services Northwest, Fair Housing Council of Oregon, and IRCO Africa House.
