Description:

Amid a growing climate of hate, the specter of mass violence looms large over our public spaces. From schools to synagogues, colleges to churches, mosques to shopping malls, terrible mass casualty events have claimed or changed countless lives worldwide and have stolen children’s innocence and adults’ sense of safety. How should we understand the violence of hate? How does hate emerge and spread both in person and online? And, most importantly, what can be done to prevent it? At this event, hear from a survivor of one of worst hate crimes in modern history, a sociologist studying violent extremism, and practitioners working to tackle hate in our classrooms and in our communities, as they engage in critical conversations to deconstruct and demobilize hate.
