Council member Karen Koslowitz, who is also chair of the Queens Delegation, recently reacted to Police Commissioner James O’Neil’s release of
hate crime statistics for New York City.

“I was deeply troubled by the news released by the NYPD announcing a 31% increase in hate crimes for our city,” Koslowitz said. “We live in the greatest city in the world in one of the most diverse counties in the United States, and it is imperative that we immediately speak out and denounce hate in all its forms; because to stand silent in the face of these terrible incidents is not an option.”

“As a NYC Council Member I have proudly stood up and spoke truth to intolerance and hate in all their forms; whether it was a swastika painted on an apartment door, or someone physically or verbally assaulted because of their religious garb, sexual orientation, or the color of their skin; bigotry has no home here, it is Un-American, Anti-New Yorker and simply Unacceptable,” she added.

According to O’Neill, crimes against groups such as Muslims and Jews have surged this year.

Koslowitz urged everyone to “remain constantly vigilant to combat intolerance, and stay united in peace and love.”
