Other Prevention Education
Description We want to introduce you to our Hate Crime Training and Education Program, the only one of its kind in RI. Our chair is Norman Orodenker, Esq.. Our lead trainer is Tom Palombo, Assistant Attorney General. Our education program is coordinated by Hannah Resseger. The Hate Crime Training and Education Program director, and our contact person, is Dr. Jodi Glass. We believe in collaboration of energy, efforts and resources. We are grateful for the support of the RI Police Chiefís Association. With their support, we conduct trainings with law enforcement throughout the State, including the Municipal, Providence and RI State Police Academies, as well as related community agencies; trainings are focused specifically on becoming familiar with the language and intent of hate crime law, how to identify when a crime might be a hate crime and knowing what to do about it.
RI Public Law Chapter 42-80 created the Rhode Island Commission on Prejudice and Bias in 1994. The RI Commission on Prejudice and Bias is charged with the responsibility of studying and reporting on all forms of prejudice, bias and hatred in RI and to "revise, codify, if possible, all laws relating thereto." The commission is comprised of 17 members representing the state legislature, Attorney Generalís office, state police, community members and others.
"Hate crime" means any crime motivated by bigotry and bias, including, but not limited to threatened, attempted, or completed acts that appear after investigation to have been motivated by racial, religious, ethnic, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression which includes a person's actual or perceived gender, as well as a person's gender identity, gender- related self image, gender-related appearance, or gender-related expression, whether or not that gender identity, gender-related self image, gender-related appearance, or gender-related expression is different from that traditionally associated with the person's sex at birth or disability prejudice.
We are dedicated to training, particularly law enforcement but open to all, regarding how to recognize hate crime and what to do once it is suspected. We are in the process of expanding to schools. There is no charge for trainings.
