DEFINITIONS

Harassment: Any physical or verbal conduct demonstrating hostility toward a person because of his or her race, color, national origin, sex, disability, religion, age, veteran status, gender identity or expression, or sexual orientation.

Discrimination: Differential treatment based on unfair categorization – denial of fairness prompted by prejudice.

Bias Incident: A lawful act motivated because of a person's actual or perceived race, nationality, ethnicity, religion, gender, disability, or sexual orientation.  In other words, the act itself is not illegal, but it is "hateful" toward a particular identity group.  All hate crimes are considered bias incidents, but not all bias incidents are considered hate crimes.

Hate Crime: Any act prohibited by law that is motivated because of the victim's actual or perceived race, nationality, ethnicity, religion, gender, disability, or sexual orientation.

Bullying: Any deliberately hurtful behavior, usually repeated over time, with the desired outcome of frightening, intimidating, excluding or degrading a person.
