Power Together: When Hate Comes to Town
January 20, 2018
This workshop will focus upon faith and spirituality as protest, contemplation, and action. Using the recent examples of the Shelbyville and Murfreesboro communities facing the Alt-Right, white nationalists, and neo-Nazis plan marches in their home towns, in the aftermath of the tragedies of Charlottesville, VA, this workshop will serve as a demonstration project for faith communities to model when faced with extremists visiting their hometown space. We will explore the exilic, the confrontational, and the contemplative responses to vitriolic speech and hateful actions for the faithful and the spiritual.
