Carlos Cuevas, principal investigator, and Amy Farrell, co-investigator, along with the University of New Hampshire have been awarded a research grant for “Research on Bias Crime Victimization” for $624,638 by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ). “Bias victimization is widespread and has serious physical and emotional consequences for victims. Researchers have called for better bias victimization surveillance tools and research is particularly needed on the extent that youth suffer from bias crimes and victimization. To address this gap, the proposed study will use a mixed-methods approach to develop a comprehensive youth bias crime violence exposure instrument, the Youth Bias Victimization Questionnaire (Y-BVQ). ”
