Several years ago, a law was adopted in New York prohibiting a type of crime which strikes at the very heart of our democratic society. “Hate crimes,” or “bias-related crimes” are those where victims are intentionally selected based on a particular characteristic (specifically race, color, national origin or ancestry, gender, age, disability, religion or religious practices).

Suggestions can be sent to Dr. Marcela Armoza, Vice President for Enrollment and Student Affairs, 300 Jay Street, Namm 300, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
