Registration required for the Zoom link and will be broadcasted live on the LBA's Facebook page. This is a LIVE program and any post-event recordings will be subject to the On-Demand fee(s).

Over the past few years, both our country and Louisville have seen an increased intolerance against various racial, ethnic and religious communities.  This intolerance can take many forms, including scapegoating, derogatory language, vandalism and physical violence, which may also trigger various hate crime laws. Some of this behavior is linked to the COVID-19 pandemic while some is based upon fear and stereotyping of immigrants and refugees.

Please join the Louisville Bar Association for a conversation with representatives of the local Jewish, Muslim and Asian communities and law enforcement to learn why hate crimes are increasing, who the victims are, the applicable laws and what is being done to stop hate crimes both locally and nationally.  

Our speakers include: 

  • Joel Buno, The Crane House
  • Robert Brown, FBI Special Agent, Louisville
  • Matthew L. Goldberg, Jewish Federation of Louisville
  • Ozair M. Shariff, Stites & Harbison | Muslim Americans for Compassion

Moderated by Councilwoman Jessica E. Green, The Law Office of Jessica E. Green
