The United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia (USAODC) makes consistent efforts to reach the various diverse affinity groups living in the District. These efforts are facilitated through our Hate-Bias Task Force. The Hate-Bias Task Force is a collaboration of agency and community partners in the District who focus on addressing the needs of the various affinity groups in the city and combating hate-bias crimes. In addition, the Task Force, in an effort to educate the community about the criminal justice system and to develop bonds of trust between these communities and law enforcement, has conducted various outreach programs.
The next Hate Bias Task Force Meeting will be co-hosted with The D.C. Center and the D.C. Anti-Violence Project. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, July 24, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. at the Frank D. Reeves Center, 2000 14th Street NW, Washington, DC 20009. Please come learn about the law surrounding hate-bias crimes and how our office prosecutes these crimes. For special accommodations, please contact Melanie.firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-252-6930.
