Bias Victimization and Help-Seeking among Latino Adults

Event Date
Tuesday, February 25, 2020, 01:00PM

Hate crimes and bias victimizations are often underreported. Similarly, the victimization experiences of Latino individuals are highly understudied. Given the current socio-political climate in the United States, it is even more important to understand the intersection of bias victimization and minority populations, as well as the degree to which these forms of violence are reported to formal and informal resources.

Join researchers from the Violence and Justice Research Laboratory at Northeastern University as they talk about results of their study the examined hate crime and bias victimization among Latino adults. Their findings suggest that rates of victimization are higher than what may be indicated by official report statistics or national level surveys. In addition, disclosure to formal help-seeking resources are notably low and variation in help-seeking may exist across gender, immigration status, and crime type. Understanding these trends is crucial in developing appropriate services for bias crime victims, and particularly for those victims from the Latino population.
