What is a Hate Crime?Say Something.Home Page

In the year that followed the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, CPHV like many other civil rights organizations watched the rate of reported incidents of harassment targeting Muslims and Arabs decline. However, at the same time, members of Maine’s immigrant and Muslim communities were reporting significantly increasing levels of fear.
In response, CPHV focused its advocacy work on investigating and documenting the fear and bias experienced by immigrants, refugees, Muslims and Arabs in Maine. In November of 2003, we released our findings and recommendations for policy development and community support.
