Shine a Light on Hate

Shine a Light on Hate: Creating a Compassionate Community

Shine a Light on Hate: Creating a Compassionate Community is a response to the significant recent increase in violence, harassment, and intimidation against a variety of groups. The event will consider factors that lead to discrimination and intolerance, and then offer constructive actions that can be taken within one's own area of influence - family, neighbors, schools, workplaces - to build a more inclusive and welcoming society.

This event is organized by Jewish Federation of Greater Toledo's Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) and the MultiFaith Council of Northwest Ohio, working together with over a dozen community partners including The Ability Center; Area Office on Aging of Northwestern Ohio; City of Toledo: Human Relations Commission; Diocese of Toledo; Equality Toledo; La Conexion; Lourdes University; NAACP Toledo; NAMI Greater Toledo; Sisters of St. Francis, Sylvania; United Muslim Association of Toledo; University of Toledo/University of Toledo Medical Center; Welcome TLC; Women of Toledo; and YWCA of Northwest Ohio.

The event includes a keynote address, three rounds of breakout sessions offering multiple opportunities to learn about specific community issues, and a concluding panel. Local organizations will have information tables, accompanied by small bites and cultural performances. In the registration link, you will be asked to choose which breakout sessions you would like to attend.

There will be a separate children’s/youth track as well.

The event is FREE, RSVP required. Click here to register.
