Are you concerned about civil unrest following the results of this week’s elections? Do you worry about hostility and acts of violence in our San Diego community? San Diego County District Attorney Summer Stephan and Deputy District Attorney Leonard Trinh from the Hate Crimes Unit will define hate crimes and hate incidents. During the presentation they will discuss the limitations of speech protected by the First Amendment and how hate crimes are prosecuted. Additionally, they will  explain how to identify and report hate incidents, and how reporting of incidents may be able to prevent or help prosecute more serious crimes.
