Today: Cultural Awareness Series: Shane Windmeyer and The Impact of Hate

Join us for “The Impact of Hate” with Shane Windmeyer on Wednesday, April 11, 2012, at 7 p.m. in the Donahue Auditorium.

Many of us do not understand the impact of bias and hate on a college community. We are neither prepared to handle an incident, nor empowered to actively do anything to prevent one. Fighting hate begins with awareness. Most victims are so frightened and shocked, they don’t know where to turn on campus for help.

For more than a decade, as founder of the national Stop the Hate Program (www.stophate.org), Windmeyer has trained more than 1,200 people to actively prevent and respond to hate crimes.
