Roston’s talk is part of Gonzaga’s 4th International Conference on Hate Studies, “Engaging with Communities for Justice,” and is sponsored by Gonzaga’s Institute for Hate Studies and the Spokane County Human Rights Task Force.
On Saturday, Roston will discuss neo-Nazi group The Daily Stormer’s online harassment campaign targeting several Jewish residents of Whitefish. The community responded with a “Love Not Hate” rally, encouraging messaging and community meetings. Roston will share her experience, and advice on responding to hate and promoting human rights.
