Attorney General's Civil Rights Violation Hotline

  • Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey's office has launched a Hotline to Report Incidents of Bias-Motivated Threats, Harassment, and Violence in the wake of the presidential election. Residents can call 1-800-994-3228 or fill out an online civil rights complaint form if they've witnessed or experienced bias-motivated threats, harassment or violence against immigrants; racial, ethnic and religious minorities; women; and LGBTQ individuals. The Hotline and complaint form are available in English and Spanish.
  • Potential hate crimes – including bias-motivated assault, battery, and property damage – should also be reported to the local police. If you fear for your immediate safety should call 911.
