Tim Martinez

BROOKLYN, NY
FOUNDER, HATE THE HATE

After being the victim of a bias attack, Tim Martinez, also known as Tim No. 37, founded "HATE the HATE," a hard rock/heavy metal concert series which aims to raise awareness of hate crimes, bullying, discrimination and suicide. HATE the HATE supports many groups such as The Trevor Project, The Its Gets Better Project and The Hetrick- Martin Institute by raising money through its concerts. HATE the HATE has raised more than $3,000 to donate to these groups.

Launched in New York City, HATE the HATE is moving across the country in order to gain popularity with a broader audience. The movement has grabbed the attention of many celebrities such as Tyler Burrow, Mina Caputo, Juliya Chernetsky, Cisely Saldana, Chef Chris Santos and Mia Tyler, who have dedicated their time to supporting the cause.
