Medicine for HATE (Pam Orbach) (Redmond Regional Library)

"When hate becomes respectable, then it is particularly dangerous." Harold Thurman. Do you feel powerless when you hear hate speech, or witness acts of hate? - Are you struggling to find a way to engage with current political polarization at the dinner table? - Is there disconnection from people you care about, because their views are difficult to hear? Please join this interactive exploratory conversation to tap into our own experiences and find wisdom about the medicine for hate (inspired by conversation with Kit Miller, Director of the Gandhi Institute of Nonviolence in Rochester New York).
