Understanding and Preventing Youth Hate Crimes and Identity-Based Bullying Symposium (Day 1)
Held on October 27 - 28, 2021 and hosted by OJJDP, Understanding and Preventing Youth Hate Crimes and Identity-Based Bullying was a national symposium on preventing and combating identity-based bullying and criminal extremist hate groups as they impact our nation’s youth. This virtual symposium addressed important topics such as 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. Panel discussions provided programs, best practices, and evidence-based strategies 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.
