Course Description

Length: 1h 0min    Published: 4/19/2018    
Hate crimes are broadly defined as criminal offenses motivated by an offender's bias due to a victim's membership of a class such as race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. There are a number of federal and state statutes that deal with hate crimes head-on, as well as several civil remedies that can be used to help make a hate crime victim whole. In this course, the Director of the Stop Hate Project, Becky Monroe, provides an overview of hate crime law in the United States. The course is meant for a resource not just for attorneys engaged in prosecuting hate crimes, but also for those attorneys interested in providing civil legal support for hate crime victims.
