This week, the House and Senate will consider the Jabara-Heyer NO HATE Act — a critical move to begin addressing the escalation of white supremacist violence against marginalized communities. The bill is named after Khalid Jabara and Heather Heyer.

Both Khalid Jabara and Heather Heyer's deaths were prosecuted as hate crimes. However, neither was included in the federal hate crimes statistics because so many local law enforcement agencies do not accurately report these attacks.

The NO HATE Act is named after two individuals, Khalid Jabara and Heather Heyer. The former was a 37-year-old Arab American killed by his neighbor in a 2016 incident in Tulsa, OK.

The deaths of Heather Heyer & Khalid Jabara are tragic examples of our broken hate crime reporting system. To stop this scourge of violence we need better data to implement comprehensive, meaningful solutions. We need the Jabara-Heyer NO HATE ACT.

Today's vote on the NO HATE Act honors the memory of Heather Heyer & Khalid Jabara, & the thousands of others who have been victims of these un-American, abhorrent, bigoted crimes. Today we make a statement that we will not accept these violent acts of hate.

In Opinion Susan Bro, Heather Heyer’s mother, and Haifa Jabara, Khalid Jabara’s mother, write, “For Heather and Khalid, and all of the victims of hate crime in our country, we must and can do better.”

I join the families of Heather Heyer&Khalid Jabara to demand Congress take meaningful action to fix our broken hate crime reporting system. Passing the NO HATE Act will help ensure that these under-reported crimes are treated w/the seriousness they deserve

Today marks the anniversary of two tragedies. Hate violence took the life of Khalid Jabara on Aug. 12, 2016, and the life of Heather Heyer exactly one year later. For Khalid, Heather, and all victims of hate crime—tell Congress to support the #NOHATEAct .

Khalid Jabara and Heather Heyer were murdered in hate crimes but neither murder was reported as a hate crime in official government statistics. In the eyes of the government, they were not even data points, their mothers explain.
