SCI Hosts ‘Understanding Bias and Hate on Campus’

ADL Hate Crime Training

On November 15, the Safe Communities Institute sponsored Understanding Bias and Hate on Campus, a training program for law enforcement professionals and others, led by Ariella Schusterman, Deputy Regional Director of the Anti-Defamation League Los Angeles.

The training included examining the importance of personal and group identities and the impact of marginalized, devalued and/or excluded identities on campus; exploring strategies for creating and supporting an open environment on campus that is safe for all individuals and points of view; and focusing on the First Amendment and how free speech on campus impacts identity and campus environment. The training was POST-certified for eligible law enforcement participants.
