Visit CSBE's United Against Hatred Website 
The goal of this new site is to  address hatred and prejudice whatever the source.The concept for the site emerged during a CSBE meeting of a task force of concerned congregants and community members on November 30, 2016.  It was acknowledged that 2016 was truly unprecedented, as an atmosphere of anxiety, fear, distrust and even hatred emerged throughout the United States . The statistics show a continued staggering increase of hate in 2017. It is the hope of the website's founders that its creation will be a positive action against those who spew hatred, target and threaten the peace, possessions and safety of all citizens.
