The objective of these recommendations is to address the disconcerting rise of hate incidents and begin shifting the culture of Westchester County to promote mutual respect and an appreciation of differences, as well as to build stronger communities across the County.

 

 

The components of the plan are:

  • Defining the term “hate incident”
  • Training community-based organizations, schools and law enforcement on implicit bias
  • Handling incidents that come to our attention
  • Education and outreach plan
  • Communications campaign

The public meeting is scheduled for Dec. 17, 2018 at the White Plains Public Library 6 to 8 pm. We invite you to attend this meeting and look forward to a productive discussion. Download the flier.
