Office of the City Attorney
Your City Attorney’s Office works with state and federal agencies to ensure that anyone committing a hate crime is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
A hate crime is a crime against a person, group, or property motivated by the victim's real or perceived protected social group. Examples include threats, verbal or written; physical assault or attempted assault; and hate-related graffiti, including swastikas and other offensive symbols.
If you have ever been targeted because of your disability, gender, nationality, race or ethnicity, citizenship, immigration status, religion, gender identity, or sexual orientation, we can help you:
The City Attorney’s Office participates in the San Diego Regional Hate Crimes Coalition, a group formed to unite law enforcement agencies with community-based organizations to tackle the issues presented by hate crimes in the community.
Contact 911 or go to a local hospital if you need immediate attention.
Or call us at 619-236-6220.
We want to help you fight hate in our community!
