Anti-Hate Community Leaders Group
CASSA initiated the Anti-Hate Community Leaders’ Group in March 2019 after the devastating Mosque attack in New Zealand against peaceful worshippers. This event shook many racialized & religious minority communities to the core and left many who work on anti-racism issues with severe anxiety about the state of hate in this world.
Anti-Hate Conversation Series
The Anti-Hate Conversation Series was originally a panel-style livestream series but has since converted to a recorded, podcast series that aims to spread awareness on current hate-related and social justice issues by inviting speakers to provide insights into the underlying causes and next steps for these issues. Episodes are released biweekly on Spotify and Google Podcasts and consist of questions from the moderator, Maryam Faisal – CASSA’s Anti-Hate Initiatives Project Coordinator, pertaining to the weekly topics and responses from the guest speakers.
The series is currently on its second season and in relation to the Collaborative to Combat Online Hate (once the project page is up, we can link it), focuses on the many issues related to online hate. Some of the past topics in this series have included:
- Anti-Asian Racism Amid COVID-19
- State of Islamophobia
- Rise of White Supremacy and the Far-Right
- Anti-Black Racism in Healthcare
- Sexism and Misogyny in Racialized Communities
- Anti-Indigenous Racism
- Addressing Homophobia, and many others.
