Anti-Transgender Hate Crimes: The Challenge for Law Enforcement The Anti-Violence Project of Massachusetts conducted a study of hate-motivated assaults and batteries against transgender victims. The objective was to generate information that could better equip police to fight this scourge, which is scarcely evident in official hate crimes statistics. The study included both a survey of transgender victims about their attacks, conducted in cooperation with the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition, and a review of the research literature on the subject. The study shows that the prevalence of these hate crimes is seriously under reported.(Link Checked 8/12)
