State Attorney William Gladson Joins Florida Hate Crime Coalition

State Attorney William “Bill” Gladson has joined the Florida Hate Crime Coalition (FHCC) to assist in their mission to make Florida’s hate crime law comprehensive. Hate crime laws increase sentences for criminals who target victims because of his or her personal characteristics.

“As Florida continues to grow, and reflect a more diverse population, it is important that the hate crime law continues to evolve in order to guarantee equal protection for all citizens under the lawGladson said.

Gladson joins more than 340 members including elected officials, law enforcement, civil rights groups, and other non-profit organizations in their efforts to ensure that anybody at risk of being victimized by a hate crime simply for who they are, what religion they practice, who they love, or what their national origin may be, are considered and covered under Florida’s hate crime law.
