"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.
