Ivy Tech Community College Northeast is hosting Hate Crimes and the LGBT Community: Connecting Federal and Local Responses on Nov. 8.
The event aims to educate the community on hate crimes as related to the LGBTQA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, asexual/ally) community and explain why and when the FBI would get involved.
The two-part event includes:
- A presentation by the FBI from 1 to 3:30 p.m., and
- A panel discussion including local law enforcement and community members from 4 to 5:30 p.m.
The event is a partnership among Ivy Tech Northeast, the Northeast Indiana LGBTQ Coalition, and IPFW. It will be held at the Public Safety Academy: Ivy Tech South Campus, 7602 Patriot Crossing.
