LOS ANGELESApril 12, 2024 With hate crimes on a distressing rise across America, the Center for Freedom and Safety (CFS) today announced the official release of its groundbreaking, anti-hate crime app – Sayfer. Designed as a technologically sophisticated, yet user-friendly tool, the Sayfer app empowers individuals to document and report hate crimes, forging a crucial bridge between community members and law enforcement.

The Sayfer app stands as the first of its kind, providing a secure and accessible platform where users can submit evidence of hate crimes and incidents through anonymous or identifiable reports. These reports are meticulously evaluated by a cadre of trained analysts who maintain a direct line to law enforcement intelligence hubs ensuring that every claim is taken seriously and addressed properly.

“Sayfer emerges as a beacon of hope, enabling individuals to report incidents with confidence, either identifiably or anonymously.” – Suzanne Brown, Executive Director of the Center for Freedom and Safety

“In a decisive move to combat the rising tide of hate crimes and hate incidents, which have surged in our country by nearly 12% from 2020 to 2021, Sayfer emerges as a beacon of hope, enabling individuals to report incidents with confidence, either identifiably or anonymously,” stated Suzanne Brown, Executive Director of the Center for Freedom and Safety. “Every report funneled through our Sayfer app is a strike against the shadows where hate thrives, reinstating power into the hands of victims and witnesses, while equipping law enforcement with the initial research-based analyses needed to activate responsiveness with precision and empathy. Our mission goes beyond merely tracking these heinous acts; it’s about weaving together the fabric of our community through connection, empowerment, and mobilization thereby laying the groundwork for a future free from the fear of hate crimes.”

With real-time notifications on local and national hate crime trends and comprehensive updates, Sayfer equips users with actionable information to stay informed and alert. The Sayfer Anti-Hate Crime app’s launch is especially significant for communities long targeted by hate crimes, including Black, Jewish, and LGBTQ+ populations. By harnessing the power of technology and human intelligence, CFS’s Sayfer app sets a new standard in the fight against hate, promoting safety, accountability, and inclusivity. CFS invites everyone to join the movement against hate by downloading the Sayfer app and utilizing its features to protect and connect our communities.
