Pro Publica — Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino, is quoted in an article about the New York City Police Department’s effort to track hate crimes in the city, which it has done since 1980.

The article noted that hate crimes spike after major events, such as the Sept. 11 terror attacks.  “This is not a new phenomenon,” said Levin, who served on the NYPD prior to attending law school. He said that hate crimes vary widely by city and that local factors will deeply affect how national conversations about hate play out.

The article was published Dec. 21, 2016.
