Race, Religion, and the Law: The Role of Attorneys in Combating Hate Crimes
ICNY and New York Law School invite all New Yorkers to join us on Wednesday, June 8, to explore governmental and community-based responses to the troubling rise in hate crimes against racial and religious minorities — including Asian-Americans, African-Americans, Jews, Muslims, Sikhs, and others. Speakers will include legal scholars, representatives of city agencies, and leaders of impacted communities. The program will feature keynote remarks by Judge Gary S. Katzmann, Judge of the U.S. Court of International Trade, in honor of the late Judge Robert A. Katzmann, former chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
Religious and civic leaders, social justice advocates, and community members are welcome to join the conversation, along with attorneys in all legal practice areas. Attorneys can earn CLE credits, and all New Yorkers can help to build a just and inclusive city.
Free and Open to All, but Registration is Required
