It could be your religion, your race or your sexual orientation that makes you the target of a hate crime in San Diego.

Recent FBI data shows there was a 15 percent jump in reported hate crimes in 2017 from the year before.

Nationwide, the number of reported hate crimes climbed 17 percent from 2016.

San Diego U.S. Attorney Adam Braverman will address the latest statistics in a public forum Wednesday. The "Stop the Hate" forum is being co-sponsored by the San Diego Regional Hate Crimes Coalition. It will feature panels of prosecutors explaining legal rights, resources and other community speakers.

U.S. Attorney Braverman joins Midday Edition Wednesday to discuss what might be driving the uptick in reported hate crimes.
