Central Indiana organization launches hate crime database

INDIANAPOLIS – As community leaders continue to push for a hate crime law in Indiana, a new tool will help people share their experiences.

Hoosiers will be able to report hate crimes on the Central Indiana Alliance Against Hate website.

“One of the things we have found in previous attempts to get a hate crime law there has been insufficient data. We certainly envision this being used as a more effective mechanism in order to talk about sheer statistics,” said Amy Nelson of Central Indiana Alliance Against Hate. “Plus we don’t want to lose those personal stories, but we need to have those statistics as well.”
