Discrimination and Hate Crime

Safe and healthy communities are a concern for all community members, including service providers and governments. A significant threat to the safety of our communities is violence and crime. The documents below address a specific kind of crime: hate crime. A perpetrator targeting a victim(s) with specific characteristics due to prejudice and/ or bias is called a hate crime. Hate crimes or related incidents range from bigoted propaganda to violence. Hate crimes negatively impact the sense of safety in a community and create a climate of fear.

The Abbotsford Community Protocol is designed to help community members and stakeholders react promptly and effectively with resources and a step-by-step response guide whenever critical incidents of discrimination, hate crime or related incidents occur.
