Dear PSA Director,
Communities Against Hate, a national initiative working to document and address hate incidents, collects personal stories of hate and provides support services for those in need. Hate incidents are bias-motivated incidents committed, in whole or in part, because of actual or perceived race, color, religion, national origin, gender, orientation, gender identity, disability, and/or ethnicity.
The data is clear: Hate is pervasive in America. Analysis of the initiative’s recent 2018 report shows that hate incidents touch every demographic and can occur nearly anywhere, from city streets to places of worship to the workplace.
Please help your listeners participate by placing this PSA in heavy rotation now through Sunday, March 31, 2019.
Thank you in advance for your support,
Communities Against Hate
