Online Bias/Hate Incident Reporting Form

bias incident is any act, including conduct, speech, or expression, in which a biased motive (against a race, religion, disability status, ethnicity/national origin, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation) is a clear contributing factor. A hate crime is a bias incident that has risen to the level of a crime. All hate crimes are bias incidents, but not all incidents are crimes.
