Hate crimes and bias incidents in our communities hurt not only the intended victims, but everyone around them as well. In 2017, at least 27 trans Americans were murdered due to hate-based violence. Members of the LGBTQ community face increased violence around the country.
As we prepare for Pride Month, celebrating identities & individuality, it’s important to prepare for the uncomfortable, unsafe, and unwanted incidents of prejudice, bias, and stereotypes that may arise. Join Chhange, Garden State Equality, and Chief Investigator David D’Amico for a one-night workshop that will empower you to stand up against hate, during Pride Month and throughout the entire year!
This workshop will include members of the LGBTQ community & law enforcement from across the state. Everyone is invited to attend and learn more about how bias crime impacts our communities! This event is free & open to the public.
