Hate Crimes Prevention

The National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) works to guarantee all individuals live free from violence and persecution. From the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009 and beyond, NCJW has been and continues to be on the front lines helping to enact landmark civil rights legislation. Our unique history compels us to protect and defend marginalized communities from acts of hate and bias. That is why we continue to advocate for laws and policies that strengthen hate crime laws and data collection to ensure all communities can live free from hate.
