Virtual Symposium: Understanding and Preventing Youth Hate Crimes and Identity-Based Bullying
The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) is pleased to host a national symposium on preventing and combating identity-based bullying and criminal extremist hate groups.
This virtual symposium will address important topics like current trends and research on identity-based bullying, cyberbullying, youth-related hate crimes, and how hate groups use social media and technology to reach, recruit, and radicalize youth. It will also provide programs and best practices on how schools, families, law enforcement, and communities can work together to build protective factors in youth and help youth resist and disengage from extremist hate groups.
This event will be held October 27–28, 2021.
