The Story the Numbers Tell (or Don’t) About Hate Crimes
We rely on data about hate crimes to illustrate the magnitude of this challenge and to help shape our response. Yet, hate crimes – where a person is targeted because of immutable, protected characteristics – against Jewish, Black, Latinx, AAPI, Muslim, LGBTQ+ and other marginalized communities are vastly underreported. This panel of civil rights advocates, community leaders, and legal experts will explore the significant barriers to reporting that victims face; approaches that might enable individuals and communities to share information in a meaningful way; and how these perspectives should inform our strategy going forward. CLE Credit available for this panel.

If you want to know more about what social media platforms and policymakers can do to curb hate, antisemitism and discrimination without infringing on First Amendment rights, this session is for you.
