United States Attorney Zachary A. Cunha held the second in a series of “United Against Hate Workshops” to increase awareness of hate crimes and hate incidents in Rhode Island, and how to report them. More than seventy attendees attended the workshop that focused on identifying and reporting hate crimes and incidents in the LBGTQ+ community.
The workshops, part of the Department of Justice’s “United Against Hate: Identifying, Reporting and Preventing Hate Crimes” program, continue efforts to: (1) improve reporting of hate crimes by teaching community members how to identify, report, and help prevent those hate crimes; (2) build trust between law enforcement and communities; and (3) create and strengthen alliances to combat hate between the United States Attorney’s Office; federal, state, and local law enforcement partners; and community organizations.
