Stop the Hate - First Amendment vs. Hate Speech

Thursday, November 7, 2013 -
12:00pm to 1:00pm
Wisconsin Room, Markee Pioneer Student Center

The Pioneer Involvement Center is sponsoring a Stop The Hate session for anyone interested. This session will discuss the differences between hate incidents and crimes, offender motivation, victim impact and needs and much more. Learn how to recognize and prevent hate incidents and crimes on campus. Hate crimes and incidents seriously threaten society today; thousands of people are victimized each year because of their skin color, ethnicity, religion, gender, gender identity and sexual orientation. Each college and university has a crucial role to play in preventing bias-motivated hate incidents and crimes, and UW-Platteville is no exception. UW-Platteville has over 30 formally trained Stop the Hate trainers.
