Defusing Hatred program at Christ the Lord, Pinole

Tuesday, August 1, 2017, 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm

Learn nonviolent communication skills in a safe environment and develop tools for responding to uneasy situations and hate speech. Enjoy an informative, visual presentation followed by conversation and hands on experience through role-play. Christ the Lord, Pinole, host this program with the hope of building communities of care and protection of the vulnerable, especially in this time of heightened tension and public acts of aggression. The Contra Costa Interfaith Council will share institutional and personal forms of interruption of cultural oppression. And then they will do some role-playing of different situations to discuss how best to be present for others. They will do a quick survey of the history of hate crimes in Contra Costa County and then review the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights.

Cost: Donation to the Contra Costa Interfaith Council
