FAMILIES UNITED AGAINST HATE (FUAH) provides support, guidance and assistance to families* and individuals dealing with incidents based on bias; and to the people, organizations and agencies who serve and support them.
FUAH is a nonprofit grassroots organization created by and for families and survivors of hate motivated violence, in collaboration with other individuals and organizations.
FUAH defines hate incidents as violent acts or intimidation committed against a person, group or property that is motivated by an offender's bias. The victim or property has been intentionally selected because of a real or perceived identifiable characteristic or circumstance, or because of an affiliation with people with that characteristic or circumstance.
Although not all are protected by national and state laws yet, bias motivated incidents might include but are not limited to incidents based on: race, color, religion, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, disability, gender, socio-economic status/homelessness.
* We define family broadly to include biological, extended and chosen family.
