City Launches Anti-Discrimination Ad Campaign in the face of Rising Bias Crimes

The city launched a new anti-discrimination campaign in response to the recent rise in bias crimes.

The Commission on Human Rights unveiled a campaign, including ads and PSA videos to remind all New Yorkers that they have the right to live, work and, pray without facing discrimination or harassment.

They'll be placed in more than 3,000 locations in several languages over the next six weeks.

The city says last year, there was a 30 percent increase in reports of discrimination based on race, religion and immigration status.

The Mayor says it is important for New York to stay united and reject hate and intolerance.
