Hate crimes are any crimes that are targeted at a person because of hostility or prejudice towards a person's disability, race or ethnicity, religion or belief, sexual orientation or transgender identity.

This can be committed against a person or property and can have a devastating impact on the individual or group that is being targeted. A victim does not have to be a member of the group at which the hostility is targeted. In fact, anyone could be a victim of a hate crime.
