What is The Hate Index?
The Hate Index represents a journalistic effort to chronicle hate crimes and other acts of intolerance since the Nov. 8, 2016 Presidential Election victory of Republicans Donald Trump and Mike Pence over Democrats Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine.
The idea is to tally as many verifiable incidents as possible, and create an easily searchable data base that lets users slice and dice the data points (e.g. location, type of incident, etc.) in various ways.
Who is behind The Hate Index?
The Hate Index is a faculty-led product of the City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism’s NYCity News Service. Our volunteer crew consists primarily of students, staff and faculty members.
