Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum invites you to a presentation and panel discussion at the Muslim Educational Trust Community and Educational Center to understand the underlying issues and share potential solutions for the recent spike in hate-related incidents. Professor Jack Levin, a nationally recognized expert on violence and hate, will discuss the psychology and dynamics behind this troubling trend. His presentation will be followed by a discussion moderated by Oregon Department of Justice Director of Civil Rights, Erious Johnson. The panel will include diverse community leaders, law enforcement personnel and elected officials, who will share their insights and take questions. Please join Attorney General Rosenblum and take a stand against hate.

Jack Levin is the Brudnick Professor of Sociology and Criminology and co-director of the Center on Violence and Conflict at Northeastern University in Boston. Professor Levin's work on hate crimes, mass murder, serial killers, and prejudice has made him one of the most widely recognized and quoted sociologists in the public sector. For over 25 years, Professor Levin has used the sociological perspective to contextualize sensational media stories, dispel myths, influence public policy and change how people think about violence and hate crimes.
