    Ald. Debra Silverstein (50) was joined by numerous other alderpersons and human rights organizations Thursday morning to present a measure that updates the city’s anti-hate crimes ordinance for the first time in more than 30 years. 

    Among the changes in the so-called Chicago vs. Hate Ordinance (O2023-0003932) the most notable are the addition of a new, more inclusive term that accounts for non-criminal hate incidents, new tracking mechanisms for hate crimes, non-criminal incidents, graffiti and vandalism and expanded requirements for city officials to keep and share reports on instances of hate.
