Hate/Bias Response Symposium

Harnessing Radical Hope for Collective Action

December 3–4, 2019
Hosted at UW-La Crosse

Join us for a two-day symposium on hate/bias prevention, response, and healing, built around a social justice framework, in an effort to facilitate and sustain educational/organizational systems that are more safe, equitable and just.

Sponsored by the UW-La Crosse Research & Resource Center for Campus Climate and the UWL Hate Response Team, in partnership with We Are Many United-Against Hate.

Objectives include:

  • Explore trends and best practices for hate/bias prevention, response, and healing centered engagement
  • Grapple with current issues, legal complexities, and institutional barriers regarding hate/bias incidents & crimes
  • Provide support, resources, and ideas for schools and organizations working toward the establishment or sustainment of anti-hate/bias efforts
  • Examine institutional accountability, particularly from a counter-narrative lens, for hate/bias prevention and response
  • Disrupt institutional systems, climates, and cultures that support any manifestation of hate/bias
  • Establish a network of hate/bias preventers, responders, and healers throughout higher education and beyond
