Miami SAO’s Hate Crimes Unit proactively protects victims by not only prosecuting cases, but also by bringing awareness and information to vulnerable members of our community who could be targeted for a crime based on bias or prejudice.
The Asian-American Affairs Board of Miami-Dade County’s Office of Community Advocacy hosted a Hate Crime Awareness Forum. Participants included members of the State Attorney’s Office Hate Crimes Unit, Miami-Dade Police Department, FDLE, FBI, U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida, Department of Homeland Security, the United States Department of Justice, the Black Affairs Advisory Board of Miami-Dade, Community Relations Board, Miami-Dade County Commission for Women, Domestic Violence Oversight Board, Miami-Dade County Elder Affairs Advisory Board, Miami-Dade County Hispanic Affairs Advisory Board, LGBTQ Advisory Board of Miami-Dade County, among others.
