Stop Hate Crime

With the increasing volume of hate crimes occurring in-and-around King County, the county has created a new community based hate crime hotline called the Stop Hate Hotline. The hotline should help victims of hate crimes access services more quickly and efficiently than in times past. It should also improve the county’s ability to collect relevant data on reported hate and bias crimes. Callers to the hotline will be directed to community, non-law enforcement, groups and agencies that offer culturally sensitive counseling and trauma informed care. In essence, the Stop Hate Hotline will act to triage calls from residents who are unsure where to turn and/or what to do to find helpful resources when suffering at the hands of hate. In the social justice era, this is one more avenue to seek help without the forced assistance of law enforcement.

If you or a loved one is in a bind as a result of a criminal charge, immediately contact a Seattle Criminal Attorney. A Criminal lawyer is not going to judge you, and understands that everyone makes mistakes. Hiring a Seattle Criminal Lawyer to help can – at a minimum – reduce penalties, and can help direct people on how to best deal with their criminal charge, and many times even get them dismissed. So it should go without saying that someone cited for a misdemeanor or felony should hire a qualified Seattle Criminal Lawyer as soon as possible. Criminal charges can cause havoc on a person’s personal and professional life. Anyone charged with a crime in Washington State should immediately seek the assistance of a seasoned Seattle Criminal Lawyer. SQ Attorneys can be reached at (425) 359-3791 and/or (206) 441-0900.
