|Racial slurs. Sexist epithets. Xenophobic violence. Chants of “build that wall” in front of Latino schoolchildren. This is the ugliest America many of us have seen.
People across the US have reported being targets of aggressive comments, threats, and vandalism based on their race, ethnicity, religion, or gender. Hate crimes are spiking and elected leaders are rejecting basic human rights standards.
This rising tide of hate-fueled acts and fear is cause for concern – and action.
President-elect Trump promised to be a president for all Americans. He should make it clear that crimes of hate are unacceptable and will be prosecuted under his administration.
Human Rights Watch is calling on Trump to abandon the misogyny, racism, and xenophobia that marked his campaign. We will not stand by and ignore bullying and hate.
Neither should our leaders. And—I know—neither will you.
Now more than ever, we need to rise up and rally behind our core values: that human rights are universal. They apply to everyone.
Thank you for standing with us.
