Senate Sub Committee to hold a Hearing on Hate Crimes

NEW YORK, NY (TIP): In the wake of the tragic, hate motivated shootings in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, a United States Senate Subcommittee announced September 12that it will hold a hearing on threats posed by extremist hate groups in the United States.

The announcement was motivated in part by a request from a diverse group of more than 150 organizations, led by the Sikh Coalition, that the Senate hold hearings on hate crimes and domestic extremism.

The hearing, entitled “Hate Crimes & the Threat of Domestic Extremism,” will be held before the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Human Rights, chaired by Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), on Wednesday, September 19, 2012 in the Dirksen Senate Office Building, Room 226, Washington, DC starting at 2:30 p.m.
