SPLC Co-Founder Joseph Levin: Hate Crimes on the Rise

April 6 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Southern Poverty Law Center co-founder Joseph Levin, Jr. will visit Alabama Law to discuss the uptick in hate crimes across the country, specifically those targeting religious minority groups. Mr. Levin will cover what sort of hate crimes SPLC has documented, how SPLC and other lawyers combat these kind of attacks with the law, and how hate crime charges fare in court. The talk will touch on the rise in anti-Semitism, Nazi symbolism, and hate crimes targeting Jewish community centers nationwide (such as bomb threats and vandalism of cemeteries). Don’t miss this current and important discussion! This event is hosted by ACS and JLSA.   Room 140
