USC Price Policy Forum:

Price experts discuss hate speech, policy implications after Charlottesville

After the events in Charlottesville, people have reason to discuss what constitutes hate speech and its impact on the public, Associate Professor Lisa Schweitzer told an audience of students, faculty and staff at a Sept. 12 Policy Forum hosted by the USC Price School of Public Policy. Schweitzer was joined by Dean Jack H. Knott and Professor Erroll Southers, director of the Safe Communities Institute, in a discussion of the policy implications and responses to racism and extremism after the violence triggered by a white-nationalist rally in the Virginia city last month.
