In response to the rise of hate crimes nationally, the USC Cecil Murray Center for Community Engagement invited faith leaders and community activists to join a critical conversation with the FBI and US Attorneys’ Office (USAO) in Fall 2021.
This session provides a detailed orientation on how to make sure hate crimes against houses of worship and in communities are addressed. Faith and community leaders will gain a better understanding of the USAO’s processes.
The Cecil Murray Center also aims to build a bridge between faith communities and the USAO, so that there are stronger relationships and better communication.
