As hate crime and bias incident rates continue to increase across the United States and in Oregon, the legal landscape for victims of hate crimes and bias incidents in Oregon shifted with the adoption of Senate Bill 577. Over the past two years, advocates and attorneys throughout the state have begun defining effective practices to help victims navigate the new laws and services SB 577 introduced. The National Crime Victim Law Institute’s (NCVLI) September 29, 2021 Advanced Victim Assistance Academy will provide an in-depth introduction to these new laws and services, lead in-depth, group discussions to share knowledge about their application, and collaboratively develop more intentional intake, screening, and service practices to ensure that victims of hate crimes and their communities receive the advocacy they need.
