(KGTV) -- A forum discussing the growing problem of online hate will be held this Wednesday, September 30th.

It is hosted by the San Diego Anti-Hate Crime Coalition. The group coordinates outreach, education, and dialogue regarding bullying, hate incidents, and hate crimes in the San Diego region.

With the pandemic and many people at home, the organizations chairperson said hate speech has increased.

A lot of time, [people] dont have much else to do, but write and speak their mind anonymously. When you dont have to show your face, people become emboldened and say things they wouldnt say in public, said Christopher Tenorio, a federal prosecutor and chairman of the coalition.

Wednesdays discussion includes panelists from the U.S. Attorneys Office, City Attorneys Office, and the District Attorneys Office.

Other groups involved include the Anti-Defamation League, San Diego State University, the San Diego Citizens Advisory Board on Community/Police Relations, the Anti-Defamation League, the Consulate of Mexico in San Diego, and the Islamic Center.

The online event runs from 5 to 6:15 p.m. It is open to the public, but you must RSVP at: Shastity.Urias@usdoj.gov
