Hate/Bias Flyers

Dear Neighbors,

On behalf of Mayor Bowser, I wanted to share that we are aware of the recent hate/bias flyers that have been distributed and seen through out Ward 4. We want all residents to know this will not be tolerated. We are working and will continue to work with MPD and relevant agencies to address this issue and ensure residents feel safe.

If you see any hateful flyers please do not hesitate to call 911.

Reports can also be made by:

Calling or visiting a Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) district station; or
Calling the Hate Crimes Hotline at (202) 727-0500. Callers may report incidents anonymously. If you leave a contact number, someone will return the call the next business day.

Also, see the attached Values In Action Flyer. And, visit the Office of Human Rights website which has more detailed information of government resources to address hate/bias motivated activity.


Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Jasmin Benab
Executive Office of the Mayor
