Deborah Lauter Executive Director The Office for the Prevention of Hate Crimes (OPHC) Deborah Lauter is a senior executive and strategic leader with a three-decade career of combatting stereotypes, prejudice, discrimination and hate through anti-bias education, law enforcement training, and community relations. New York City’s crime decline continues to outpace the rest of the U.S., yet both the city and country have seen an unacceptable increase in hate crimes. According to NYPD data, hate crime incidents in the city increased by 64 percent between 2018 and 2019.
The new Office for the Prevention of Hate Crimes will take a holistic, multi-pronged approach, engaging educators, law enforcement and the community in long-term strategies to combat and respond to hate.
