Crime can happen everywhere, at any time, and to anyone. Learn everything you need to know to protect yourself and your family, by taking control through safety tips, from a police officer. The County Human Rights commissioner will touch base upon hate crime statutes on how to effectively and legally speak up and take actions.

At this difficult time of COVID-19 pandemic, we hope the regularly scheduled talks can help parents and students with the home-school and distance learning plans. We want to thank Howard County Community Organizations Active in Disaster (COAD) for sponsoring this activity.
