Gov. Kathy Hochul announced the launch of a statewide Hate and Bias Prevention Unit.

The unit will lead the public in education and outreach efforts, serving as an early warning detection system in local communities and quickly mobilizing to support areas and communities in which a hate incident has occurred. Hochul spoke about the importance of how we all have a role in preventing hateful acts.

“All of us collectively, morally, have a moral responsibility. Not just for the people of today but for the next generation because progress today with life much easier for our children and grandchildren as we go forth,” Hochul said.

The hate and bias prevention unit launched on Saturday.
