Ask your Senator to sign on to Senator Durbin and Senator Feinstein’s letter!
As part of an on-going effort by ADC to track hate crimes against Arabs, a group of US Senators are urging Attorney General Eric Holder and FBI Director Robert Muller to allow for the collection and tracking of hate crimes committed against Arab Americans, Sikh Americans, and Hindu Americans.
Last year, in response to a written request by ADC to the Department of Justice (DOJ) to include “Arab” among the “race” identities that may be recorded on the Hate Crime Incident Report (Form 1-699), ADC was invited to present our request to the DOJ. ADC submitted an official follow up request on the matter which can be read here.
We have come a long way since, and we hope this letter from the Senate will help us move the process forward.
