Today: Wednesday May 13, 2015 – The Daily Beat went down The Murphy Institute for a conference on “Violence and The City”. At the panel discussion on immigrants, violence and policing, Dr. Brown discusses his paper entitled, “Crime and mobilization: How hate crimes relate to the mobilization of immigrants?”. We learn that many immigrant groups struggle to create political action and mobilization after such violence is placed on their community.
