The past few years have seen an increase in hate crimes across the country. This training will discuss what that trend looks like on the national and local levels and review what constitutes a hate crime. We will provide a legal overview of the relevant federal and state laws, and what to do if you experience or witness hate. The training will include hypotheticals and group discussions. Coffee will be provided.

If you cannot attend on this date, we will be hosting the same training at the Gwendolyn Coffield Community Center on March 10. Check our calendar for details.

This module is facilitated by representatives of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, a nonpartisan nonprofit that launched the Stop Hate Project to support community leaders, law enforcement, and organizations in combating hate.

We are conducting this training as part of a year-long training series to promote more consistent and thorough responses to hate and bias in Montgomery County. The series features four themed modules, which will each culminate in a town hall.
