Hate Crimes

In this lesson, provided by the Constitutional Rights Foundation, students look at several hate crime examples and discuss whether hate should be outlawed.

"Hate Crimes," crimes motivated by race, color, creek, religion or gender are on the rise around the world, including the United States where over half of such crimes are committed by people under the age of 21.

Constitutional Rights Foundation (CRF) is a non-profit, non-partisan, community-based organization dedicated to educating America's young people about the importance of civic participation in a democratic society. Under the guidance of a Board of Directors chosen from the worlds of law, business, government, education, the media, and the community, CRF develops, produces, and distributes programs and materials to teachers, students, and public-minded citizens all across the nation.
