How to Report a Hate Incident

The Bloomington Municipal Code defines a hate incident as including verbal or physical abuse directed at individuals or groups because of their race, sex, color, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, national origin, veteran status or housing status. If you are a victim of a hate incident, or witness one, we encourage you to report it. Doing so can help you get the support you need. You may make a report by doing one or more of the following:

--If you believe a crime has occurred, call 911 as soon as you can so that law enforcement may take appropriate action.

--Contact the Bloomington Human Rights Commission by calling 812-349-3429 or e-mailing human.rights@bloomington.in.gov. The BHRC accepts anonymous reports. The BHRC staff will listen to your description of the incident, will try to make appropriate referrals, will help you file a police report if that is your wish and will include a description of the incident in its annual hate incidents report. (No names are included in the annual report.)

--Fill out and submit the form below.
