Series: Safety and Risk in Society

BISAC: REL116000

On average, 205,000 U.S. residents report being victims of hate crimes every year, according to DOJ officials. Hate crimes, including those motivated by bias against an actual or perceived religion, can have a broader effect than other kinds of violent crimes because they target both the victim and the group the victim represents.

Chapter 1 examines the role of religious actors in hate crimes. Chapter 2 reviews the prevalence of religious-based hate crimes and bias incidents on college campuses; what steps colleges are taking to address them; and the extent to which Education and DOJ help colleges, campus law enforcement, and other stakeholders monitor and address these crimes and bias incidents. Chapter 3 looks at the rise of anti-Semitism.
