ProPublica sent public-records requests to more than 50 police departments that reported anti-heterosexual hate crimes to the FBI. None of the reports we could track down actually included evidence of hate crimes against straight people.
A full-time fellow, New York Times reporters and some of the country’s best journalism students have joined ProPublica’s project to report on hate crimes and bias incidents.
Hate crimes often fall through the cracks in our justice system, and we've only just scratched the surface of understanding why.
We’re launching a new interactive project, the Documenting Hate News Index, that shows just how ubiquitous hate incidents really are.
It’s been about six months since we joined forces with newsrooms around the country to track hate. We’ve collected information on thousands of incidents, but much remains unknown about the scale of the problem.
The coalition of newsrooms behind “Documenting Hate” has recorded a wide variety of violence in all corners of the country.
