Governor Andrew Cuomo has launched a toll-free hotline for New Yorkers report incidents of bias and discrimination.
The hotline will help the state’s efforts to protect New Yorkers and allow those who are victims of prejudice file a complaint with the Division of Human Rights.
Following the rise of the recent reports of discrimination, bias-motivated threats, harassment and violence, Governor Cuomo also announced investigations into alleged hate crimes across New York.
New Yorkers who have experienced bias or discrimination are encouraged to call DHR’s toll-free hotline at (888) 392-3644 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday – Friday. If you fear for your safety or need to report a crime, call 911 immediately.
