OJJDP will host "Overview of Criminal Extremist Hate Groups" as part of OJJDP’s Preventing Youth Hate Crimes & Identity-Based Bullying Initiative webinar series.
During the webinar, presenters will help attendees:
- Understand criminal extremist hate groups' trends, symbols, locations (heat map(s)), communications, targets, and style of recruiting juveniles.
- Understand strategies from a practitioner perspective when working with youth who have been radicalized or are at increased risk for being radicalized.
- Gain an understanding of the State and Local Anti-Terrorism Training Program, which addresses how to prevent targeted violence and hate crimes by providing strategies, resources, technical assistance, and grants to agencies.
- Learn about the lived experiences of a former extremist.
The webinar series is supported by OJJDP's National Training and Technical Assistance Center (NTTAC). To obtain handouts and documents for this event, law enforcement personnel should contact the OJJDP TTA Help Desk at [email protected] or by phone at 833–647–0513.
