Attorney and Hate Crimes Survivor
Taylor A. Dumpson is a nationally recognized anti-hate advocate and attorney with a background in education law, criminal justice, hate crimes, and civil litigation. Dumpson was deemed a “Uniter” by President Biden during the White House’s United We Stand Summit on hate-filled violence in 2022, for her work combatting hate and sharing her experience as a hate crimes survivor.
Dumpson earned her B.A. in Law and Society with a concentration in Social Science from American University and her J.D. with a concentration in Rights and the State from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law.
Dumpson began her legal career at the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, as a Fellow and later Associate Counsel, and currently serves as Special Assistant Attorney General in the Criminal Division of the Rhode Island Attorney General’s Office.
The inaugural Eradicate Hate Summit was a truly impressive gathering of leaders dedicated to finding lasting and effective solutions to violent extremism. I was particularly moved by the prominence given to survivors and family members of victims of hate and violence throughout the event. Their stories and those of so many others must be at the center of what we do and why we do it.
