Preventing Hate Crime

In California, you are considered a victim of a hate crime if you have been targeted because of your "real" or "perceived" race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or physical or mental disability. People belonging to these groups are referred to as "protected classes." All people are members of a protected class. Members of our Chico State campus community are encouraged to report hate crimes to our university police.

Chico State Pride

Chico State Pride’s mission is to provide a safe place for all students on campus to respectfully discuss issues pertaining to the LGBTQ+ community and promote the dissemination of knowledge to the general student body. Pride strives to create leaders amongst the membership and to foster the inclusion of a diverse population representative of our community. We will structure the support to our members in the form of political advocacy, education, and socialization.
