The Defusing Hatred Program at Hillcrest Congregational UCC
June 28, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm| Free
Hillcrest Congregational Church (UCC) (404 Gregory Lane, Pleasant Hill) Wednesday, June 28th at 6:00 pm.
The Defusing Hatred Program
Learn nonviolent communication skills in a safe environment and develop tools for responding to uneasy situations and best practices for interrupting harassment and hate speech.
Enjoy an informative, visual presentation followed by conversation and hands on experience through role-play.
We host this program with the hope of building communities of care and protection of the vulnerable around us, especially in this time of heightened tension and public acts of aggression.
We will share institutional and personal forms of interruption of cultural oppression. And then we will do some role-playing of different situations to discuss how best to be present for others. We will do a quick survey of history of hate crimes in CCC and then review the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights.
