Oregon Department of Justice

Hate crimes and bias incidents are on the rise, both in Oregon and nationally. In 2019, the Oregon legislature passed SB 577 », which updated Oregon’s bias crime laws (formerly called intimidation), defined the new legal term bias incidents, created a victim-centered response hotline for reporting bias, requires law enforcement to refer all victims of bias incidents to support services, and streamlines data collection about bias occurring in Oregon.

See the Oregon Department of Justice website to get report a bias or hate crime, and get access to resources and educational materials.
