Identifying and Supporting Victims of Hate Crimes

Hate crimes are surging across the country. According to the FBI, 2019 saw the highest number of hate crimes recorded nationally in the last decade. In this training, the Anti-Defamation League Pacific Northwest will provide an overview of the fundamentals of hate crimes, discuss the trends of such crimes using the Pacific Northwest data as an example, and explore how local governments and Congressional Budget Offices alike are responding to hate. The session will help ensure that practitioners can identify hate crimes and understand how to connect victims of hate crimes with other service providers for holistic support.
