View of the Week: On Fighting Hate

We are pleased to feature this courtesy of the organization Stand With me as they continue their efforts to fight hate, strengthen hate crimes and work on overcome discrimination in all areas with action items for us all.   It provides an indication of grass roots organizations striving to make a difference on a constant and consistent basis.  


How can religious groups or immigrant populations (and their allies) be effective advocates especially when they are small in number? That's a question we answered at our webinar this past week on how to advocate for stronger hate crimes and anti-discrimination protections with your elected representative.You can view the entire webinar here. Thank you to Poligon Education Fund for lending their expertise and to all of you who attended and donated to Stand With Me. We hope to continue bringing you similar webinars in the future.
