      EVENT DETAILS
      Hate Crime Forum

      The Charleston Police Department in partnership with the Anti-Defamation League will come together with community stakeholders to discuss the topic of hate as a crime motivator. The purpose of the forum is to share the narratives of those impacted by hate crime and to hold space for dialogue about the state of hate crime legislation in the City of Charleston and the State of South Carolina.  The first half of the Forum will include keynote speakers such as Joe Engel, a holocaust survivor, and Mrs. Jennifer Benjamin Pinckney, a survivor of the mass shooting at Emanuel AME church. The second half will feature a panel discussion facilitated by Drisana McDaniel. Panelists include representatives from various communities vulnerable to hate crimes.  The Alliance for Full Acceptance and NAACP will host a reception at JohnKing Bar and Grill, located at 428 King Street immediately following the Forum.  For further information, please contact either of the following event coordinators: Chelsea Taylor (843)720-3782 or taylorch@charleston-sc.gov Officer Terry Cherry (843)720-2470 or cherryt@charleston-sc.gov
