Held on October 17 and 18, 2023, "Understanding and Preventing Youth Hate Crimes and Identity-Based Bullying" was a virtual symposium on preventing and combating identity-based bullying and extremist hate groups as they impact our nation's youth.

This virtual symposium discussed 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.
