Video – Coffee Talk: Responding To Hate & Violence, Part 2
On Sunday SpokaneFāVS hosted a Coffee Talk where panelists continued a previous discussion on Building Dialogue for Justice in Response to Hate & Violence.
The first conversation took place at the June Coffee Talk and can be viewed below.
Panelists spoke on the topic briefly, before leading a discussion on the topic with attendees.
Some questions addressed included:
- What is the role of each citizen to create a more civil society where random acts of violence cannot be tolerated as normal?
- How can we empower ourselves to effect a positive change in our community?
- What actions, large or small, can each of us commit to on a daily basis?
- Angela Schwendiman, Africana Studies Director, EWU
- Pui-Yan Lam, Professor of Sociology and Justice Studies, EWU
- Amy McColm, Education Committee Chair, Spokane NAACP
- Joan Braune, Lecturer in Philosophy, Gonzaga University, who recently wrote, “Experts who study far-right mass violence must center the communities affected“
The next SpokaneFāVS event will be in September. Details coming soon.
