Eradicate Hate:

Dr. Kristine F. Hoover is a professor and chair of the Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership program. She is also the past director for the Gonzaga Center for the Study of Hate. Under her leadership, the Gonzaga Center for the Study of Hate has continued to publish the Journal of Hate Studies, a peer reviewed academic journal, and honored the legacy of holocaust survivor Eva Lassman through the Take Action Against Hate and Student Research awards. She designed three new courses at the freshman, senior, and graduate levels to support students’ understanding of why people hate and methods to counter hate. Her most recent publications include the Countering Hate: Leadership Cases of Nonviolent Action, which explores how ordinary people have accomplished extraordinary things to counter hate groups in communities across the United States. The book is relevant to college and university students and community members alike. Projects currently underway include the creation of a digital archive honoring the leadership of photographer Diana Gissell, who documented the demise of the Aryan Nations compound and the creation of a documentary honoring the lifetime achievements of Dutch Resistance fighter Carla Peperzak, a woman whose leadership directly saved the lives of 40 people from Nazi extermination.
