the attorney general s vision
The Attorney General’s Vision
  • ‘Hierarchy of Hate’
    • “I have heard arguments that say that by broadening our attention we dilute the effort to eradicate racism – I can not accept that argument. The same bigotry that fuels racism fuels other types of hate.”
  • Challenge to give consistently high Level of service
    • “We must seek to provide the same high degree of service to all hate crime victims. This must mean that all areas achieve the same high standard; I can assure you that I would never allow this to mean that our efforts to combat racism should be diluted in any way.”
  • Race for Justice Declaration
