No Hate In Our State

No Hate In Our State

An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us. Sadly, mass casualty and shooting incidents fueled by hate and bias have become the norm across the nation. But Governor Cuomo has made it clear that there is no place for hate in our state and continues to take aggressive steps to ensure all New Yorkers, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, or gender identity are free from violence and discrimination.

This year, amid the worst outbreak of anti-Semitic violence in decades, Governor Cuomo is proposing a comprehensive agenda to combat hate, discrimination and all forms of prejudice.

Update: The "New York Hate Crime Anti-Terrorism Act" was passed in the FY 2021 Budget.


Governor's Proposal

Hate Crime Domestic Terrorism Act

Legislation creates a "domestic act of terrorism motivated by hate" crime as a new A-1 class felony punishable by up to life in prison without parole.
Applies to individuals over 18 that: act with intent to cause death of five or more people; motivated by the intended victims' (actual or perceived) race, color, national origin, ancestry, gender, gender identity, religion, age, disability or sexual orientation; cause the death of at least one person.
