Executive Commissioner
NYS Division of Criminal Justice Services
Alfred E. Smith State Office Building
80 South Swan St.
Albany, New York 12210

Dear Commissioner Green:

We are writing to request a copy of the 2017 New York State Hate Crimes Task Force Report.

As you know, under New York State Executive Law (Section 837(4-c)), the Division of Criminal
Justice Services is required to compile an annual hate crimes report. It has been brought to our
attention that the 2017 report is not published on the DCJS website; the last published report is
from 2016.

We would also like a timeline as to when we can expect to see the 2018 report. With recent
dramatic increases in hate crimes and hate-based incidents in New York State, the annual report
would contain crucial data for legislators and policymakers as we develop proposals to address
these troubling trends.

Thank you for your attention on this matter. We look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Nily Rozic Brad Hoylman
Assemblywoman State Senator
25th District 27th District
