Short Descriptions

Single line description:

In San Francisco, a heroic prosecutor stands up for survivors of hate violence, including a Mayan dishwasher and a transgender woman, both brutally beaten on the city streets.

Paragraph description:

A Prosecutor’s Stand follows San Francisco Assistant District Attorney Victor Hwang as he brings hate crime charges against perpetrators who brutally attack a Mayan dishwasher, an African-American homeless man, and a transgender woman, Mia Tu Mutch. As prosecutors investigate the cases, the District Attorney’s office and local law enforcement uncover a skinhead network operating in the city. While hate crime charges are hard to prove, Hwang raises awareness about the importance of reporting and prosecuting hate, and works with the community to seek justice for the victims.

The film was produced in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Justice COPS Office as part of the Not In Our Town: Working Together for Safe, Inclusive Communities Initiative.

Documentary - 21 minutes

About Not In Our Town

Not In Our Town is a movement to stop hate, address bullying, and build safe, inclusive communities for all. Not In Our Town documentaries, new media, and organizing tools help local leaders build vibrant diverse cities and towns, where everyone can participate. Learn how you can take action at NIOT.org.

Launched by The Working Group in 1995, Not In Our Town began with a PBS documentary that told the story of how people in Billings, Montana joined together to respond to a series of hate crimes in their town. This simple, powerful story of citizens banding together struck a chord with audiences, and created a model that inspired viewers around the country to hold their own campaigns against intolerance. Not In Our Town has grown from a PBS documentary into a national effort to connect people working together to take action against hate and create safe, inclusive communities.

This film is being released as part of the Safe, Inclusive Communities Initiative, a collaboration between Not In Our Town and the COPS Office. As part of this initiative, the COPS Office and Not In Our Town have joined forces to create vital new tools to help law enforcement professionals and community partners work together to prevent hate crimes, improve hate crime reporting, and address underlying tensions that can lead to violence.
