NIJ Grant | Understanding the criminal justice and health care needs of Latinx victims of hate crime and bias victimization

People in this story

School of Criminology and Criminal Justice Director Amy Farrell, and School of Criminology and Criminal Justice Professor and Co-Director of the Center on Crime, Race, and Justice, Carlos Cuevas, were recently awarded a grant to examine the significant gap in knowledge of the impact of experiencing bias motivated crime among the Latinx community, particularly on service seeking and health outcomes. Farrell and Cuevas will conduct research that is necessary to better understand the role of cultural factors (e.g., immigrant/generational status, acculturation) in mediating or moderating the relationship between bias events and important outcomes including service utilization, health care access, and physical and mental health concerns.
