USA: Documenting hate

Documenting hate. ProPublica.
„Hate crimes and bias incidents are a national problem, but there’s no reliable data on the nature or prevalence of the violence. We’re collecting and verifying reports to create a national database for use by journalists, researchers and civil-rights organizations.“
„ProPublica is an independent, nonprofit newsroom that produces investigative journalism in the public interest. In addition to us, the project’s growing list of partners include The Google News Lab, Univision News, the New York Times Opinion Section, WNYC, BuzzFeed News, First Draft, Meedan, New America Media, The Root, Latino USA, The Advocate, and Ushahidi. We’re also working with civil-rights groups such as the Southern Poverty Law Center, and schools such as the University of Miami School of Communication.“
