4 lATE CRIMES
nued from Page 1
R"ilities, said E. Frederic Dennis, director of
f1e University's Office of Lesbian, Gay,
Bisexual and Transgender Affairs.
'The "federally protected activities" clause has
,"proven to be impractical and limited the ability
of the statute," Correia said, adding that these
activities include going to school or traveling
along a highway. The law was first enacted in
1968 - a time when "certain kinds of activities
0should have federal protection," he said.
On a whole, hate crimes decreased 4 percent
nationally in 1998, according to a study con-
dicted by the National Coalition of Anti-
Violence Programs. But the extreme nature of
crimes has increased.
Despite the national decrease, Michigan saw
an 8 percent increase in murders of gay people,
the second highest nationally, Kosofsky said.
m But the University has not "had a lot of
high .profile cases reported to the office,"

He also said hate crimes are under reported,
adding that he supports the federal Hate Crimes
Prevention Act of 1999 but is also working on
an all inclusive statewide hate crimes bill.
More than 30 senators and 140 representa-
tives are sponsoring the bill, Correia said.
Correia said Judiciary Committee Chair and
Sen. Orrin Hatch (R- Utah) is expected to hold
hearings on the bill April 28.
As the Clinton administration works to pass
hate crimes legislation, it is also collecting data
to assess student attitudes towards discrimina-
tion on campuses nationwide.
According to an MTV poll conducted by
Penn, Schoen and Berland Associates, Inc.,
released yesterday, 95 percent of young people
support the expansion of hate crime laws.
The MTV poll showed that 91 percent of
young people believe that hate crimes are a
national crisis and the federal government
should take action to prevent them.
Universities are currently required to report
all hate crimes to the Department of Justice
under the Campus Security Act.

LOCAL/STTA]
The new legislation will carve out a special
role for federal involvement in protecting peo-
ple from discrimination, Correia said.
By prosecuting hate crimes, the government
is sending "an important signal to people that
this kind of behavior has to stop," he added.
The legislation and proposed programs are a
"signal that there is a problem," said Sean
Kosofsky, assistant director of policy at the
Triangle Foundation.
White House officials also will be conduct-
ing surveys on the subject.
"Hate crimes alone don't tell the whole
story" said assistant Director for Policy
Planning Mary Smith, adding that the adminis-
tration hopes to acquire more information on
the climate in general.
Once the survey data is collected, the
Department of Justice and the Department of
Education will be able to assess the next appro-
priate step, Smith said.
Officials plan to have a test run of the survey
ready in the fall and expect to have the data by
spring 2000, Smith said. The survey will only

The Michigan Daily - Wednesday, April 7, 1999 --7

be sent to a small subset of schools. As of yet
it has not been determined which schools will
be selected.
The program will also target middle schools
in a joint effort by public and private institu-
tions. The private institutions working on the
program include AT&T, Court T\, the National
Middle School Association, the Anti-
Defamation League and Cable in the
Classroom.
These institutions will work with the depart-
ments of Justice and Education to teach toler-
ance to middle school students. "The primary
emphasis is to teach tolerance in student's
everyday lives," Smith said.
It is particularly important to target middle
school students and "to reach the population of
students while they're in their attitude forming
years," Smith said.
The MTV poll found that almost one-third
of respondents admitted to making discrimina-
tory jokes or comments. One-half to two-thirds
of respondents said they heard others make
negative jokes or comments.

caused when she came out of the closet on national televi-
sion, will be discussing her life since announcing herself as a
lesbian on her weekly sitcom and addressing how it is being
gay in the media spotlight, Buchanan said.
DeGeneres wants to share "who she is and what her
lifestyle is about" Coordinator for the Office of Major
Events Linda Sigler said.
Laughtrack usually brings comedians to campus for enter-
tainment purposes, but members of the group didn't want to
pass up the opportunity to hear DeGeneres speak on more
serious subjects.
Last fall DeGeneres and girlfriend Anne Heche made it
known that they were mistreated by Hollywood once they
came out of the closet, Buchanan said, adding that thisis an
"opportunity to tell (DeGeneres') side of the story."
The speech will be followed by a question and answer
period.
Tickets are available at the Michigan Union Ticket Office
and at Ticketmaster outlets. Tickets are $12.50 for students
and $15 for the general public. For $50, interested audience
members can join the reception following the speech.
