It will also provide programs and best practices from experts in the field on how schools, families, law enforcement, and communities can work together to build protective factors in youth and help youth resist and disengage from extremist hate groups.  Register for the event: https://ojjdp.ojp.gov/events/virtual-symposium-understanding-and-preventing-youth-hate-crimes-and-identity-based-bullying
