Local Experts to Gather to Discuss Stopping Hate Crimes
"Working Together to Stop Hate" is tomorrow night at Heinz History Center.
Experts from the Pittsburgh community and beyond will gather Tuesday night to discuss how to stop hate crimes in the United States.
" Working Together to End Hate " is the latest event in the Town Hall series presented by PNC. The event starts at 5:30 p.m. at Heinz History Center, with the panel discussion starting at 6:00. The event is free and open to the public.
In the wake of the Tree of Life Synagogue attack that killed 11 people, attorneys, activists and others will discuss how law enforcement can combat hate crimes and other solutions to the disturbing trend. In the most recently available statistics, the FBI reports a 17 percent increase in hate crimes in 2017 from the previous year.
Prior to the panel discussion, a resource center will be available, featuring various local and national organizations, including Mayor Peduto's office, the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh and Council on American-Islamic Relations.
