Your career as a Victim Advocate has changed since 2001 with the increase in school shootings, hate crimes, and domestic terrorism. The February 26, 1993, bombing of the World Trade Center (the first attack on the WTC) in New York City can be considered a change in victim services for those impacted by these events. “9/11” occurred 8 years later on September 11, 2001). It is unclear where the line exists between domestic hate crimes and terrorism. The Department of Homeland Security was created in 2002 by Public Law 107-296, November 25, 2002, to combine all or part of 22 different federal departments and agencies into a unified, integrated Department, better equipped to confront the range of threats the United States faces.
