Hate Crime & Discrimination Listening Session
January 8 • 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm• Free
Hate crime has been on the rise in Oregon — despite what local racist Jimmy Marr experienced in Corvallis earlier in December when a brawl with Antifa somehow ended with Marr taking a trip to the hospital. Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum chairs a legislative task on hate crimes to study hate-motivated crimes in Oregon. When Rosenblum announced the task force’s formation, she said Oregon’s laws governing hate crimes might benefit by a full review and may need to be updated. To understand these crimes, Rosenblum is holding listening sessions on hate crimes all around Oregon. Representatives will be available to hear from the public about experiences with hate crimes and discrimination in Eugene. Community members can provide comment without sharing names or through written testimony.
The task force on hate crime and discrimination is 6 pm Tuesday, Jan. 8, at Harris Hall, located at 125 E. 8th Avenue. FREE. — Henry Houston
