NJCUs campus community will welcome the national outreach director of the Southern Poverty Law Center this Tuesday (April 18th from 5:30 p.m. 7:30 p.m.) for an important discussion. Lecia Brooks will address Hate-fueled Crimes and Policies: Human Rights Threats Due to The Current Presidential Administration in Hepburn Halls Gothic Lounge, room 202.

The rise in hate crimes we are seeing today across the country may not be all precisely due to our president, Donald Trump, but the actions people believe they can take ever since he became president. Many people in our nation are now protesting for the rights of immigrants that have been living here for quite some time and are being deported or fear being deported. Others are concerned about actions against Muslims, members of the LGBTQ community and excluding minorities from certain aspects that involve the country.

Brooks has taken the time out to help our community better understand the events going on by involving us in a discussion of the Southern Poverty Law Centers 2016 Hate Map. The map shows harassment and hate incidents that have happened since the presidential election. This discussion will also include information about hate groups in New Jersey.

This is an important event to experience because not only can you have a better understanding of what is going on in the world, but you may be able to share your own experiences whether you have been involved in a hate crime or harassment issue involving race, religion, or gender.

In our generation today, we are so focused on ourselves that we often forget that other people go through things that we as a whole can prevent. This event is a way to share experiences and get a better understanding of what the presidential election is doing to this country.
