AG HEALEY ANNOUNCES NEW HOTLINE TO REPORT INCIDENTS OF BIAS-MOTIVATED THREATS, HARASSMENT AND VIOLENCE

The hotline will be managed by attorneys and staff in the AG’s Office. While not every incident will be appropriate for legal action, the AG’s Office will be tracking reports and appropriate matters may be referred to local law enforcement or the Attorney General’s Criminal Bureau.
Any Massachusetts resident who has witnessed or experienced bias-motivated threats, harassment or violence may call the Attorney General’s Hotline at 1-800-994-3228 or fill out a civil rights complaint form at this link (http://www.mass.gov/ago/consumer-resources/your-rights/civil-rights/civil-rights-complaint.html). Residents may also contact the AG’s Office through its social media platforms, including Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/MassAttorneyGeneral/) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/MassAGO).
Potential hate crimes – including bias-motivated assault, battery, and property damage – should also be reported to the local police in the first instance. Residents who fear for their immediate safety should call 911.
