Thank you for publishing my photograph, @DCPolicyCenter, in this excellent analysis performed by @Shirin_Arslan on the state of hate crimes in Washington, DC.

The stark rises in reported hate crimes in D.C. seen in the last several years have been primarily driven by a rapid increase in the number of crimes reported against LGBTQ groups and communities of color, most noticeably since 2015 (Figure 1). Anti-LGBTQ crimes and race-based hate crimes now make up more than two-thirds of all hate crimes reported in the District of Columbia. Other types of hate crimes include those against political affiliation and religion and disability.Source: Hate Crimes in D.C. – D.C. Policy Center

As the article states, the American Medical Association “…recognizes that hate crimes pose a significant threat to the public health and social welfare of the citizens of the United States”
