Reference: UPDATED Report From SPLC: “Incidents of Hateful Harassment Since Election Day Now Number 701”

From the Southern Poverty Law Center:

This is the second update from the Southern Poverty Law Center’s effort to collect reports of hateful incidents of harassment around the country. This report covers the full week (Wednesday Nov. 9 to Wednesday Nov. 16) since the presidential election.

The SPLC collected reports from news articles, social media, and direct submissions from the #ReportHate intake page. The SPLC made efforts to verify each report but many included in the count remain anecdotal.

Includes several graphs including “State of Reported Incident” and “Location of Reported Incident.” K-12 Schools tops the list. Universities appears at number three.
