Event Details

As part of ADL's Centennial Commemoration, its Civil Rights Division is hosting conferences in various ADL Regions. The Southwest Region will host a Hate Crimes Conference September 17 at the Texas State Capitol in Austin, sponsored by Senator Rodney Ellis. The conference features University of Minnesota Law School Professor Mark Kappelhoff as the keynote speaker. 

Keynote speaker, Kappelhoff  joined the law school after 14 years as a federal prosecutor for the Department of Justice, most recently serving as Chief of the Criminal Section, Civil Rights Division.  During his tenure, he worked to secure passage of the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Federal Hate Crimes Prevention Act, which considerably strengthened the federal hate crime law.

Kappelhoff's speech will be followed by a panel discussion featuring him, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Texas Robert Pitman, and Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo, moderated by ADL Civil Rights Division Director Deborah Lauter. 

TCLEOSE & CLE will be available for attendees.

Registration starts at 8:30am, event promptly at 9:00am until 11am.

Immediately following will be a special law enforcement lunch. Reporting Hate Crimes: Why reporting is vital, how to make reporting easy, and how to make a convincing case for reporting hate crimes. Law enforcement will attend until 12:30.
