Continuing Education Committee Presents: The FBI on Hate Crimes

FBI presentation on Hate Crimes

Description: Hate crimes are the highest priority of the FBI’s civil rights program because of the devastating impact they have on families and communities. The FBI investigates hundreds of these cases every year, and we work to detect and prevent incidents through law enforcement training, public outreach, and partnerships with community groups.

Presented by: Special Agents Joseph M. Holzman and Amillita Marayag

Joseph M. Holzman entered on duty with the FBI in September 2009. Following graduation from the FBI Academy, he was assigned to the Fresno Resident Agency in the FBI’s Sacramento Division where he investigated primarily domestic terrorism and civil rights matters, and was a member of the FBI Sacramento SWAT Team. In 2014, SA Holzman transferred to the FBI Chicago Division and investigated national security matters until accepting a promotion to FBIHQ as a Supervisory Special Agent (SSA) in the Counterintelligence Division in August 2016. In 2018, SA Holzman returned to the FBI Chicago field office, investigating public corruption and civil rights matters.
