November 19, 2020 Press Release
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Alarmed by the rapid rise in hate crimes and the lack of comprehensive reporting about it, Congressman Jamie Raskin (D-MD) and Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) today requested a Government Accountability Office (GAO) study on the rise of online hate crimes and hate speech in the United States. The request follows the release of the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) online hate and harassment report, which found more than 1 in 3 Americans experienced online hate and harassment this year. The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) annual hate crimes report, which just revealed the highest level of hate crimes in a decade, does not capture online hate crimes at all and is a radically incomplete assessment of hate in America.
