Fargo-Moorhead Hate Crime Prevention and Response Plan

The purpose of the Fargo Moorhead Hate Crime Prevention and Response Plan (link to PDF file) is to establish a procedure for appropriate, timely and local responses to hate crimes and incidents in the Fargo-Moorhead area. The goal is to show strong support for victims of hate and zero tolerance for such incidents. In addition, the plan strives to raise awareness of hate-related issues in the community.

Most importantly, people should not feel alone when a hate incident occurs—hate is a community problem, not an individual problem.  The Fargo-Moorhead community stands together against acts of hate. Although all hate incidents are unique, and individual judgment should be used in each case, this plan endeavors to provide a course of action that should prove useful when a hate crime or hate incident occurs in the area.
