Hate Crimes: How Should Indiana Address Hate
Thursday, July 24, 7:00 p.m.
Laikin Auditorium, Arthur M. Glick JCC
It has been 15 years since our Jewish community last explored the theories behind and impact of hate crimes statutes. The JCRC will examine hate crimes as part of our Political Action Workshop series because violence against particular groups and individuals continues to increase, and because this issue may come before the Indiana General Assembly. Miriam Zeidman, the Anti-Defamation League’s Midwest Civil Rights Counsel, will share the reasons why so many states have adopted hate crimes statutes and what the impact has been. This forum is the first step in determining whether our community’s consensus position has shifted. We invite all members of the community to join in this program.
