Our Purpose

One Human Family QCA encourages victims, witnesses, friends, family, and/or third parties to report hate incidents, because OHFQCA not only helps victims of hate, we also collect data regarding hate incidents that occur in the greater Quad Cities area.

One Human Family gives you free access to an easy to fill out hate incident reporting form, adapted from the Southern Poverty Law Center. In addition, any incidents will also be reported to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

One Human Family's purpose is to provide assistance to victims of hate incidents, by offering connections to numerous resources. In addition, OHFQCA partners with United Way's 211 information service. Anyone is welcome to call 211. You will reach a live operator, who will connect you with local resources.

Organizations providing assistance are encouraged to become part of (We will appreciate your referencing "One Human Family QCA") The 211 website can be accessed by tapping here.
