About the Program 

Whether people are uncomfortable, fear retaliation, or are uncertain that justice will be served, there is a significant disparity between hate crimes that actually occur and those reported to law enforcement. Working collaboratively with the governor’s office, legislature, Judicial Branch, law enforcement, and our communities throughout Connecticut, the Connecticut Hate Crimes Advisory Council is responsible for encouraging and coordinating programs that increase community awareness and reporting of hate crimes and to combat such crimes. It also can make recommendations for legislation, including recommendations on the reporting, investigation, and prosecution of hate crimes; restitution for victims of hate crimes; community service designed to remedy damage caused by hate crimes; and additional alternative sentencing programs for first-time offenders and juvenile offenders involved in hate crimes. Join us for this engaging program to hear the council’s recommendations, FBI and federal efforts, and how you can join the fight to prevent and combat hate crimes. 

This session will not be recorded.

You Will Learn
