Reporting a Hate Crime
Reporting a Hate Crime: If you or someone you know has been the victim of a hate crime based on sexual orientation or gender identity, or if you have direct knowledge of a hate crime, you can contact your local FBI office. The Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009 gives the FBI authority to investigate violent hate crimes, including violence directed at the LGBT community.
