Hosted by: PeaceTech Lab
A casualty of successive political shocks many decades in the making, the extinction of the Capitol Hill statesman mirrors the crisis in civility felt throughout the country. Differences in political opinion are no longer tolerated or discussed and champions of hateful rhetoric are finding a comfortable place in our social fabric at the expense of those seeking understanding and common ground.
Join our speakers for a discussion on the evolution of hate-groups, politics, the media and race-relations in America as factors that contribute to the rise and normalization of dangerous speech.
