About Us

 

BiasHELP is a division of LINCS (The Long Island Network of Community Services, Inc.).

Mission Statement

BiasHELP is a program dedicated to prevention of bias crimes, hate-related harassment, bullying, technobullying/cyberbullying and discrimination. Located on Long Island, BiasHELP provides programs and services locally, regionally and nationally. BiasHELP considers an action to be discriminatory when a person or group is targeted, in whole or in part, because of their perceived differences, including race, color, national origin, ancestry, gender, religion, age, disability or sexual orientation. 

BiasHELP’s programs include prevention education, community and school-based technical assistance, support of aggressive public policies that ensure human rights protections and effective media responses to current social issues.
