Rapid Response to Hate Network | Clergy Coalition of Coral Springs and Parkland
How communities of faith are organizing against hate March 23, 2018
Faith communities are responding in different ways to hate, from creating proactive relationships to holding unity walks and interfaith dinners. We talk to Rabbi Bradd Boxman of Congregation Kol Tikvah in Parkland, Fl. He organized a proactive Rapid Response to Hate Network there that was inspired by his outreach efforts years ago in Danbury, Conn., shortly after 9/11. We also hear from executive director Rabbi Gerry Serotta and lead organizer Symi Rom-Rymer of the Interfaith Conference of Metropolitan Washington. Serotta says he's finding a silver lining in the current political climate: a new interest in learning about different traditions and desire to stand in unity with targeted communities.
