Teaching our kids compassion is so much more than just telling them to “be nice.” As technology advances, there are countless new opportunities to bring diversity and inclusivity to otherwise homogenous classroom spaces and foster meaningful connection between students.
Growing distrust, aggressive tactics, and the spread of misinformation have helped spur a deep divide between police officers and the communities that they serve. Here, we’ll explore the tactics and practices that can help heal these wounds and promote safer, stronger communities.
This panel will explore how 1A advocates, legal experts, and municipal leaders can work together in the development of structures that allow for peaceful public protest while maintaining strong and safe local communities.
12:45 PM - 2:15 PM
Luncheon Buffet with remarks from Gold Star Parent Khizr Khan and Former Cleveland Mayor Jane Campbell
2:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Group-based differences have long been used to divide and segregate communities within our nation – but looking to the future, building a strong network of well-connected allies is critical to combat hate. During this panel, you’ll hear from a slate of expert alliance-builders about how they’ve fostered toleration, reconciliation, and love within their respective communities.
As platforms struggle to answer the ongoing questions of how to address hate online, a developed understanding of the social, political, and community influences that drive bad behavior can help us in designing stronger, more diverse online spaces. Here, academics and practitioners will dive into the roots of online trolling, misinformation, and hate as well as the opportunities to overcome echo chambers that perpetuate tribalism.
In this panel, we will take a hard look at the lessons from our shared history. Where have we been successful combatting hate? Where have we failed? How have those successes and failures shaped our current world, and how do we use them all to build a brighter future?
5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
