Today’s America is contentious. Whether it’s arguments over immigration, the LGBTQ rights or what keiki learn in school, the tone and language of arguments often go beyond what most reasonable people would call civil. The foundation of our democracy is the ability to debate ideas in a vigorous, but ultimately collaborative, respectful manner, especially in our islands.


Most debates today occur online — in social media, chat groups, media reports or blogs. The anonymity of the internet encourages aggressive, hateful and inappropriate speech, language that might not be used in an in-person debate.


As a business, you must be prepared to deal with this type of speech to avoid being liable for condoning or fostering a hostile work environment. As an employer, you must draw the line between what is protected under the First Amendment and what is criminal. Your policies and processes must be developed from the perspectives of professionals in human resources, legal services and security to protect your employees and take action against employees who may be instigators of this type of speech.

Representatives from the FBI Honolulu field office will cover:


1.    What is the Federal Civil Rights Program?

2.    What Constitutes a Hate Crime Wherein the FBI Gets Involved?

3.    Free Speech vs. True Threats

4.    Public Reporting
