San Diego Union-Tribune Hosts Forum About Moving Beyond Hate
On Wednesday night San Diego community members will come together to talk about how to deal with hate and move beyond it. A forum hosted by The San Diego Union-Tribune and the National Conflict Resolution Center called "Confronting Hate, Bigotry and Ignorance" will feature panelists from across the country, all deeply impacted by hate, who will share their stories of moving their communities forward.
"We thought, 'how can we reach out nationally to the other communities who have gone through what we're going through and share their insights about what can be done to combat the rise of hate in America?'," Jeff Light, publisher and editor in chief of the Union-Tribune, said.
Wednesday's event is from 6-8 p.m. at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice at the University of San Diego. You can find more information about the event and watch a live feed here.
Light joined Midday Edition to talk about the impact he hopes the forum will have on people in the wake of the Chabad of Poway shooting which is currently being prosecuted as a hate crime.
