Online Program: When Hate Becomes A Crime

February 22 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Hate crimes in the U.S. increased overall by 7% from 2021 to 2022. In the last three months of 2023, there was a 360% increase in antisemitic incidents. Every time these crimes are committed, it creates tension and fear, and tears at the fabric of community life. But what qualifies as a hate crime? Why do hate crimes often go underreported? What steps should one take if one is a victim of or witnesses a hate crime?

Join David Williams, Cook County State’s Attorney Special Investigations Bureau; Adjunct Professor of Criminology, Law and Justice at UIC; Co-Founder, Regional Antisemitism Taskforce; and Museum LEAD Training Facilitator as he discusses case studies about hate crimes that have occurred in the Chicago area, including damage at Loop Synagogue and vandalism on Devon Avenue.

This program is FREE to the public. Reserve your spot: https://ihm.ec/hatecrimes

This program is part of the Museum’s “Understanding & Confronting Anti-Jewish Hate” community series.
