Unity in Diversity -- Anti-Fascism: Supporting Targets of Racial, Cultural, Religious Discrimination & Violence; Speaker: Michael Vavrus
Misconceptions widely exist over anti-fascist actions in the U.S. and Europe the past 100 years. A purpose of this presentation is to help clarify misconceptions about anti-fascism in the context of Merrimack’s “unwavering commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.” The presentation provides an overview of key contemporary characteristics of anti-fascism. Topics include anti-fascist approaches to counteract far-right extremism’s delegitimization of multiculturalism and diversity. A discussion with audience participants follows the presentation.
