Governor Hochul announces $16M in funding to help organizations combat hate crimes


Governor Kathy Hochul announced nearly $16 million in funding to strengthen safety and security measures at nonprofit organizations at risk of hate crimes or attacks during an anti-hate crime rally held at Queens College on Wednesday, April 13. 

“New York state’s diversity is our strength, yet too many New Yorkers continue to live in fear and today we say enough is enough,” Hochul said during the event held at the Queens College Student Union Ballroom. “Hate, racism and xenophobia have no place in our state, and this critical funding sends a clear message that New York stands united against individuals who seek to show hatred and divide us.”
