TAPinto New Brunswick is partnering with ProPublia, a nonprofit organization dedicated to investigative journalism, as well as dozens of news organizations and nonprofits across the country, for a project called Documenting Hate.

Since the November 2016 elections, the country has seen a spike in bias and hate crime incidents.

​Here in New Brunswick, ​there’s been swastikas spray-painted and white supremacist flyers posted across ​the Rutgers​ University​ campus.

Professors and those in authority have shared anti-Semitic materials on social media, and postal envelopes with swastikas and dog excrement have been left on the yard of a ​Jewish resident​ in nearby Highland Park.​

Nationally, the political environment has ​often ​​ been​ fill​ed with harsh rhetoric on immigration, gender, religion, race and LGBT issues.

But with a lack of solid data across the country, journalists, activists and the public have been left to rely on somewhat spotty patchwork ​of bias-related incidents.​

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In response, ​TAPInto New Brunswick is joining forces with organizations including the Huffington Post, New York Times, NBC News and the Southern Poverty Law Center, in a collaborative effort to track hate reports across the country.

If you have an incident you’d like to report, please feel free to fill out the form below. Please note, this is not a report to a law enforcement or government agency​, but the information may be used publicly.
