D.C. hate crimes forum location changes
The event, organized by the Office of the United States Attorney for the District of Columbia, was originally scheduled to take place at the city’s Reeves Center building at 14th and U Streets, N.W.
A flier announcing the forum says its aim is to bring together law enforcement officials and the community to gain a better understanding of issues related to hate crimes based on “race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, marital status, personal appearance, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression” and other categories, including homelessness and physical disability.
Among those expected to participate in the forum are members of the Metropolitan Police Department’s LGBT Liaison Unit and representatives of the D.C. Anti-Violence Project, which is an arm of the D.C. Center for the LGBT Community. Also scheduled to participate are members of the U.S. Attorney’s Hate-Bias Task Force.
The Third District’s headquarters is located four blocks west of the U Street-Cardozo Metro station.
