December 6, 2023 10:00 AM-11:00 AM


Whether it’s community members being targeted based on their appearance or hate speech in council chambers, it is key that local elected officials directly speak to rising hate and help lead their city’s response. Panelists will share their experiences with hate crimes and hate speech at the local level, lessons learned, and tips on how local elected officials can support their constituencies in this time of rising polarization.
