As in past years, the folks at Defy Hate Now are joining in celebrating the United Nations International Day of Peace on September 21st by jamming with people from all around the world in order to take a stand against acts of online and offline hate.
The event will take place online on September 21st from 14:00-17:00 CEST.
This year’s topic: how does racism effect our response to conflict and peacebuilding?
They will be joined by poets, spoken word artists, performers, and subject experts.
Together, we will address the connection between hate speech, racism, and tribalism and discuss why it is often so difficult to talk about racism.
Go on and join this jam online! As always, the event is open to everyone and free of charge. You can register here:
