Join us for a moderated discussion about understanding the difference between hate crimes vs. bias incidents, how a prosecutor makes the decision to charge an incident as a hate crime, proving hate crimes on the state and federal level, and what people can do if they are confronted with a hate crime and/or bias incident. We will arm participants, and their friends and families, with the knowledge they need to deal with these ugly situations, and get the justice they deserve.
