Dangerous Words & Actions: Confronting Bias & Hate Speech for educators.
In Partnership with the ADL and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is one of the nation's premier providers of anti-bias resources and training. ADL-trained facilitators will lead participants through an interactive workshop using the ADL's award-winning World of Difference Institute materials. The workshop will provide participants with resources:
- To understand the various dimensions of identity and how this applies to behavior.
- To gain knowledge of basic terms and concepts relating to prejudice and discrimination.
- To recognize and acknowledge prejudice and discrimination in themselves, in others and within institutions.
- To confront bias and discrimination in themselves and others.
The workshop will also include a special presentation by Dr. Elizabeth White of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. She will speak briefly about her work on "Defusing Hate," materials for counteracting dangerous speech.
