Is Kirsten Gillibrand right that ‘many law enforcement agencies’ did not submit hate crime data?
April 25, 2023

Brian Levin, director of CSUSB’s Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism, helped Poltifact fact-check a statement by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., recently expressed concern about hate crimes — not just that they’re committed, but that law enforcement agencies aren’t counting them and submitting their totals to the federal government. Levin said Gillibrand’s concerns are well-founded. Many large cities in recent years have reported zero hate crime or didn't participate, including Miami; Tucson, Arizona; Anaheim, California; Newark, New Jersey; and Des Moines, Iowa, Levin said.

The award-winning Cal State San Bernardino Opera Theatre, now in its 16th season, will present “Book of Longing” by Philip Glass, with poetry by the iconic Canadian singer-songwriter and poet, Leonard Cohen, on Wednesday, April 26, and Thursday, April 27, at 7:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Recital Hall.

Stacey Fraser, director of the CSUSB Opera, has chosen to set the work in an abstract version of the Zen Monastery at Mount Baldy where Cohen lived for several years and wrote much of the book, his attempt to leave “Boogie Street” or the “rat race” and find respite, as described in one of the songs from the work.

CSUSB Opera Theatre will present 65 minutes of the original work, without intermission, and will feature the CSUSB opera students as well as guest dancer-choreographer Faith Jensen-Ismay of the critically acclaimed San Diego-based dance company Mojalet Dance Collective, guest dancer Twila Fraser-Hewlett and Department of Theatre Arts professor Kristi Papailler in the role of Cohen.
