“Any number over zero cannot be divided.”

The Bob Graham Center will host an open discussion with OverZero Executive Director Rachel Brown at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 16 in the Pugh Hall Ocora. History tells us that genocide and mass atrocities are commonly preceded by “dangerous speech.” Brown has gained a deep understanding of what incites speech-driven violence and how to instead use speech to incite peace.

If hate speech is a warning sign of violence, than counteracting its dissemination provides us with an avenue for prevention. Brown will explore the strategies and tools needed to prevent dangerous speech from influencing audiences.
