Incidents of racial and ethnic hate — both inter-personal expressions of hate and acts of violence — are coinciding with deepening political polarization, distrust of civic institutions, and widening racial, ethnic and class divides. In California, the state legislature has just launched an initiative called “Stop the Hate” to support nonprofits and ethnic media working to address the issue. But what is hate, how do we measure it, when is hate a crime and can we stop it, even heal it? Speakers will address these issues and answer questions from reporters on the call.
