Uncovering Hate: OC
Thank you to organizers of Uncovering Hate OC. I was invited to speak on a panel for a discussion after a screening of, “Documenting Hate:
Charlottesville” from PBS and ProPublica. The film shines an unflattering light on the rise of hate groups here in Orange County, including Huntington Beach. I spoke about the effects of extremism in our community and schools. It was an honor to sit on the panel with Hope Jackson, Human Rights Campaign; Marwa Rifahie, Civil Rights Managing Attorney, Council on American-Islamic Relations; Rabbi Peter Levi, Regional Director, Anti-Defamation League; Laura Kanter, Director of Policy, LGBT Center OC; Miliana Singh, Health Care and Transgender Services Coordinator, LGBT Center OC; Katie Porter, Law Professor, UCI; Don Han, Hate Crime Prevention Program Coordinator, OC Human Relations; Gabriel San Román, OC Weekly; and the Irvine Police Department.
