Lecia Brooks, outreach director for the Southern Poverty Law Center, will give a presentation for Knox College students, faculty, and staff on hate groups, communicating across hate, and how to turn activism into change.
The Southern Poverty Law Center monitors the activities of domestic hate groups and other extremists. As outreach director, Brooks travels the country to promote tolerance and diversity. Her talk will share not only statistics and the characteristics of hate groups, but will include hopeful stories of when communities have united against them and advice on how to take care when engaging in social justice work.
At 7:30 p.m. on February 21, Brooks will give a public speech at Temple Sholom, 665 W. North Street, on the current situation of hate incidents in the United States and the Midwest, as well as how individuals and communities can respond. She will moderate a community discussion after her presentation.
