About HCAH

Concerned by reports of the steady rise in incidents of hate and bias in Houston, especially incidents against African American, Jewish, Muslim, and LGBTQ communities, a group of over 30 community stakeholders came together in early 2017 to develop a coordinated communitywide plan to reduce incidents of bias and hate. Over the past four years, the group has organized itself as Houston Coalition Against Hate (HCAH) and has worked toward strengthening connections between organizations working in this space, facilitating the exchange of information, skills and experience, and establishing partnerships with law enforcement agencies and other institutions, so that Houston can improve its systems to effectively prevent and reduce incidents of hate.

Currently, HCAH is a network of 65+ community-based organizations, institutions, and leaders in Houston that have come together to collectively address and prevent incidents of hate, bias, discrimination, and violence against Houstonians on the basis of a person or group’s religion, race/ethnicity, gender, gender identity/expression, abilities, age, sexual orientation, national origin, creed, immigration status, or genetic information. HCAH does this through education, research, relationship building, and prevention initiatives, as well as partnering with organizations to host events that celebrate the diversity that makes Houston strong.
