LGBTQ Hate Crimes Research

FIU partners with Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office, Miami-Dade Police Department, and SAVE LGBTQ to enhance public safety through effective identification, investigation and prosecution of anti-LGBTQ/GNC hate crimes in Miami. This goal is achieved by examining and documenting victimization experiences, offender characteristics and motivations, crime reporting and case processing nuances, and the criminal justice system’s challenges and opportunities for reform. The project is funded by the National Institute of Justice, The U.S. Department of Justice.
