Bias-Motivated Incident Data Collection Form
The Hindu American Foundation urges that if you or someone you know has been harassed, assaulted or threatened with harm on the basis of your identity (e.g., race, religion, disability, ethnic origin, or sexual orientation), please do not stay silent. Report the incident to law enforcement immediately. Similarly, please report any incidents involving vandalism, hateful graffiti, desecration, arson, or violence directed towards temples or other properties.

We also request that you help us in tracking incidents of identity-based or bias-motivated intimidation, threats, harassment, and violence being experienced in our communities. The more data we have about such incidents, the better we will be able to work with the appropriate authorities, agencies, civil rights advocates, and other stakeholders to identify areas of particular concern and ensure the safety and security of the community. Please be aware that HAF is unable to offer individual legal assistance or counsel.
