One of our biggest current problems in assessing and responding to hate crimes is the incomplete collection of accurate hate crimes data.  Among other things, the Khalid Jabara and Heather Heyer National Opposition to Hate, Assault and Threats to Equality (No Hate) Act authorizes grants to promote and improve hate crime training, prevention, best practices, and data collection initiatives – and to develop state hate crime reporting hotlines to refer individuals to local law enforcement and support services.
