Hate Crime Threat Guide 

February 2018

Department of Justice (DOJ)


This guide is something an advocate can provide to clients and have on hand to talk about what constitutes a “true threat”, which is not protected by the first amendment. It discusses what to do given the method of the threat (I.e. in person, online, etc.). Finally, it provides field office phone numbers for the FBI, including in Detroit, in order to report if someone chooses to do so.
