YWCA Delaware will hold a special Investor’s Cabinet event, “How to Challenge Resurgent Hate Groups,” at 6 p.m. Jan. 30 at Theatre N at Nemours, 1007 N. Orange St., Wilmington.
A panel discussion featuring eyewitnesses to the hate marches in Charlottesville, activists, law scholars and a religious leader will be featured.
“Most of us can agree that the resurfacing of neo-Nazis and white supremacists is a bad thing, but there are different views about the scope of their threat and the best tactics for preventing their growth and their violence,” said Matt Pillischer, director of racial and social justice for YWCA Delaware. “We want to use this event to explore these ideas from a high theoretical view down to the actual face-to-face interactions.”
Pillischer will moderate the panel.
Panelists include Erin Daly, professor of law and co-founder of the Dignity Rights Project at Delaware Law School; Rabbi Malkah Binah Klein, community leader, ritual facilitator and teacher of spiritual practices based in Philadelphia; Daryle Lamont Jenkins, founder of the organization One People's Project; and Claire Rasmussen, Professor, University of Delaware Political Science Department, with joint appointments in Women and Gender Studies and Legal Studies.
Admission is $17 for the general public and free for YWCA Investor’s Cabinet members. Reserve tickets at bit.ly/antihategroup.
