Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Gene Collier: After the trial, hope: A report from the Eradicate Hate Global Summit

Oct 1, 2023 | Featured Home Page

“The flashpoints in his memory are of blood in the snow, of the bare footprints of the panicked as they fled a fusillade, and of that 6-year-old girl, frozen in panic in the moment the assault rifle was turned on her.

I was listening to Mohammed Hashim…” Read Gene Collier’s report from the Summit.

The Summit was more than empty words – it made clear that a solution-driven approach is the only way to fight hate. That’s why the working group activities, which are results driven are going to be critical in defeating violent extremism. The Summit brought together the best minds in government, private sector, academia, and civil society. Being surrounded by these experts sparked new ideas – some of which I’ve already implemented or have written about.
