More Needs To Be Done

   Over 250,000 hate crime incidents are estimated to occur every year in our country and are particularly commonplace in schools. It will take concentrated effort and thoughtful action to confront hatred and
intolerance in our schools, our homes, our work sites, our gathering places and our faith communities. 

   Blount County United and its partners across the county are working hard to identify the warning signs of hatred brewing in the area and collaborate with officials, law enforcement officers and schools and to counteract it. We are committed to building a stronger and more united community where people of all backgrounds can safely work, congregate, worship and play without fear.
