Activities and Operational Information

PROUD (People Reaching Out Uniting Diversity) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to eliminate hate crimes. This is done by changing public attitudes, educating elected officials and expanding legal rights.

Hate crimes exist. They happen every day around the world from the largest city of the smallest town for the thousands of reported hate crimes every year, many more go unreported. Many perpetrators of hate are repeat offenders, and tend to attack in groups. PROUD is documenting when and where these attacks are occurring so real changes can be made. PROUD’s website (http://www.walkproud.org) creates a safe forum for victims to tell their story and receive help. In healing the wounds, the victims learn that they are not alone, and are not powerless. They are diverted from falling into a trap of self-destruction. This also helps to prevent future crimes, by connecting cases within an area
together and creating a library of incidents.

Work to prevent hate crimes through education and awareness.

a) work to enforce and strengthen hate crimes lost
b) create awareness through publicity and local signage.
c) establish “court watches” to assure punishment of hate crimes perpetrators
d) create and place media campaigns to create awareness and concern.
e) establish basic self-defense courses.

Provide direct aid to hate crimes victims.

a) establish a “one-stop” where victims will receive all the aid required for recovery from the crime.
b) such aid includes counseling by certified counseling, medical help as required and financial support for victims who cannot pay for the help they need, legal assistance to assure punishment for perpetrator, and help with house hold expenses until the victim is re-established in the community.

Model and effective agency that provides effective relief for hate crime victims. Make this model available to other organizations who wish to follow our success structure.


The victim is our primary concern and we want him / her to receive help and we can heal the wounds and prevent future attacks. So take this to heart that “walking proud” is more than just a phrase…it is a positive peace movement
