Speak up and speak out! This Interfaith Center special workshop will provide opportunities to learn about and exercise the skills needed to intervene with family, friends, and colleagues to combat discrimination and prejudice. Rooted in bystander intervention techniques, this workshop will specifically focus on how to address reli- giously focused hate speech and discrimination.
Free & Open to the Public Free-will offerings will help offset the costs.
