World Without Genocide

  • CAIR-Minnesota (CAIR-MN) 2511 E Franklin Ave Suite #100, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55406 (map)

Genocide is the intent to exterminate, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial, or religious group. Genocide does not happen overnight. Widespread hate-speech often precedes and accompanies mass atrocities. Leaders utilize ideologies of hatred to incite people to target innocent victims. Join us to learn about the use of hate speech and incitement during the genocides in Rwanda, Bosnia, and in the Holocaust. Examine incitement locally and globally today. Learn advocacy skills for city, state, and national action on policy and legislation:
