From the Document: "The Committee submits this report as part of its responsibility to study and report on civil rights issues in the state of Wyoming. [...] This report details civil rights concerns relating to the incidence of and response to hate crime in the state. The Committee identified several concerns including the underreporting of hate crimes, the need for training of law enforcement to address hate crimes, bias-motivated incidents and its impact on the American Indian community, the prevalence of bias-motivated incidents, the lack of hate crime legislation and its impact on vulnerable communities, and alternative solutions to address the discrimination given the history of attempts to pass hate crime legislation. From these findings, the Committee offers to the Commission recommendations for addressing this problem of national importance."
