Virtual Dialogue: Addressing Extremism and Finding Hope

Please join Communities United Against Hate and our co-sponsors for our next community-wide event – a virtual, Intergenerational Dialog on Race, Discrimination and Violent Extremism, on March 1st at 6 pm ET. The dialog will feature:

  • Grammy-winning musician, author, and race reconciliator Daryl Davis
  • Former Mississippi KKK Grand Dragon, and now well-known anti-racism activist Scott Shepard
  • Youth Creating Change leaders as moderators

Youth Creating Change leaders Olivia and Simon will facilitate a conversation with Daryl and Scott on addressing racism, creating change, and finding hope today.

Prior to the event, we will email to all registrants a Zoom link and dial-in information to join the event through your computer or phone. If you do not receive this email by the evening of March 1st, please check your spam filter. If you do not find it there, it may be the case that your IT team automatically blocks Action Network (our back-end system) emails. In that event, we recommend that you try registering again for the event using another email address or ask your IT team to whitelist Action Network emails.

This event builds on the dialog work CUAH has been doing since our Dialog: Where Do We Go From Here? Moving Forward in a Divided Land in February 2021. In the Spring, we hosted a virtual restorative community-building circle for students and adults to share experiences of school during the pandemic. In the Fall, three members of our current class of YCC Fellows began working with DC Peace Team to support restorative justice practices in their schools. Two more Fellows are creating Social Media for Social Justice, which trains high school students to counter disinformation on social media.
