Independent review confirmed 154 total hate incidents at more than 120 campuses since 2016 election
Congressman Anthony G. Brown (MD-04) introduced the Creating Accountability Measures Protecting University Students Historically Abused, Threatened, and Exposed to Crimes Act (CAMPUS HATE Crimes Act).

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, hate groups are specifically “targeting college campuses” where “you're dealing with people who may be just starting to form their ideas about the world.” Following the indictment of Lt. Richard Collins III’s murderer with a hate crime and the overall demonstrable rise of hate speech and violence on college campuses over the past 12 months, Congressman Brown drafted the legislation to better ensure students are not exposed to hate-speech, hate symbols or acts of racially motivated violence on campus.
