The Resource Center for Nonviolence participated in the Santa Cruz United Against Hate Week this year along with the Santa Cruz Public Libraries, Standing Up for Racial Justice, and Temple Beth El. Santa Cruz County United for Safe and Inclusive Communities (SCCUSIC) was the hosting organization for this week long events and used resources from the Not in Our Town organization that works to create an unprecedented collaboration of municipalities, school districts, and civic organizations to raise awareness and spark action to stop hate and build inclusion.
On Nov 30, 2022 RCNV participated in the United Against Hate Week: Youth-Focused Panel Discussion organized by the Santa Cruz Public Library.
About the panel: Join local youth and community leaders in a frank discussion about three local incidents of hate and bias and how young people and adults can work together to educate, prevent, and respond to incidents like these in the future. When communities work together against hate, we can restore respect and civil discourse, embrace the strength of diversity and build inclusive and equitable communities for all.
This program is part of the United Against Hate Week suite of events happening November 13 through 20th throughout Santa Cruz County, Sponsored by Santa Cruz County for Safe and Inclusive Communities (SCCUSIC), Temple Beth El, The Resource Center for Nonviolence (RCNV), and the Santa Cruz Public Libraries (SCPL).
