Tennessee Equality Project's (TEP) monthly meeting for April will feature representatives from the FBI in a presentation about hate crimes.

The FBI representatives will talk about federal hate crimes law, outline the process for reporting a hate crime, share contacts for the local FBI office, and answer any questions from the audience. Sexual orientation and gender identity were added to federal hate crimes law in 2009 with the passage of the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act.

Also at the meeting, candidates running for local office will have a chance to introduce themselves.
