New Wave Of Hate Crimes In Colorado Outpaces National Trend


According to a new FBI analysis, hate crimes across Colorado have reached their highest level in at least 30 years. And while this rise in hate crimes follows a national trend, Colorado saw an increase that far outpaced the rest of the country.

Today on Colorado Edition, we spoke to Jeremy Shaver of the Mountain States Anti-Defamation League, a national group that aims to combat hate crimes. He helped us to understand the rise in bias-motivated crimes and advised us on how to address this growing problem.

As the host of KUNC’s new program and podcast In the NoCo, I work closely with our producers and reporters to bring context and diverse perspectives to the important issues of the day. Northern Colorado is such a diverse and growing region, brimming with history, culture, music, education, civic engagement, and amazing outdoor recreation. I love finding the stories and voices that reflect what makes NoCo such an extraordinary place to live.
I am the Rural and Small Communities Reporter at KUNC. That means my focus is building relationships and telling stories from under-covered pockets of Colorado.
