Thank you to those of you who attended our first virtual conversation in August!
Join us for our next conversation Responding Locally to Rising Hate and Conflict — An Introduction to Ideas and Action Tools for Communities. Details to come soon.
How can we be proactive in our local communities in the face of escalating conflict?
Protests continue around the country. As concerned people gather in the streets to call out injustice, armed militia members are showing up, too, often in communities that are not their own, with violent intentions. At the same time, hate crimes are rising in our communities coupled with hateful rhetoric on social media related to out country's deep political divides. Learn about challenges from your peers across the country and national experts will provide guidance and tools for action.
We'll send out an invite closer to the event. We urge all NIOT group leaders and members to join us for this important discussion!
Also, below don't miss the NIOT Podcast featuring Susan Bro, resources for students going back to school, advice for holding a virtual NIOT screening with your group to discuss police reform, and planning underway for the annual United Against Hate Week (Nov. 30 - Dec. 6, 2020).
