CHALLENGING HATE TODAY: A HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL EVENT

Wed 26 Jan 2022 - 6:30pm

Challenging Hate Today:

a Holocaust Memorial event

 

In remembrance of all who passed and who suffered during the Holocaust and subsequent genocides, we will be inviting guest speaker Dr Joe Mulhall, a leading expert in far-right extremism, and acclaimed Andean music group Sagrada Familia - Sumaq Ayllu for an event that will explore the devestating realities of hate in our world today, and what we can do to challenge this ever present evil.

The event will also include the readings of poetry written by survivors of genocides across the world. This will be a mournful event, but one that looks into the future with hope, and tries to provide a path forward in tackling extremism in the UK, and challenging the forces of hate in our world.

This event will be taking place in the Union Chapel bar, on the 26th January at 7pm. Doors will be opening at 6:30pm.

This is a free event, but you are required to book in advance.
