ADL Senior Associate Regional Director Ariella Schusterman presented to students and community members at USC on September 12 on “Not on Our Campus: Tools and Strategies for Addressing Hate Crimes.” She was invited by USC Sol Price School of Public Policy Safe Communities Institute Director Dr. Erroll G. Southers. Schusterman addressed the definitions and resources related to hate crimes and incidents. She also spoke about how communities such as USC can address hate bias-related issues.
Beyond the definitions of hate crimes laws on the federal and state levels, audience members also received information about how to differentiate between a hate crime and a bias-motivated incidents, to understand better the unique nature of hate crimes and to review case studies specific to college campuses.
