Confronting Hate: Strategies for Prevention, Accountability, and Justice
For far too long in this country, acts of hate have harmed lives and terrorized communities. These threats have only grown more severe in recent years.

Please join the U.S. Department of Justice's Civil Rights Division for this important and timely convening about how we can all work together to address the scourge of hate-motivated violence and discrimination. This virtual conference will include discussions about the rise of hate activity, online hate, the recently released 2020 hate crimes statistics, and the role of criminal, civil, and community responses to acts of hate.

Featured speakers include Attorney General Merrick B. Garland and Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights Kristen Clarke.

Oct 25, 2021 11:00 AM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
