Hate crime and your community
Unfortunately, many individuals and groups in our society are still being subjected to racial and religious hatred. The rise of the digital age has amplified the problem, but there are ways to deal with racial and religious hatred. SAFE shares CST’s security knowledge with groups outside the Jewish community that are vulnerable to violent extremism or hate crime.
