A Month to Stamp Out Hate is a project designed to build awareness, understanding and tolerance of others, while gaining historical perspective of the Holocaust as compared and contrasted with the more recent genocide in Darfur, Sudan. Docents will teach local area students and residents about these events, timelines, and statistics; the similarities between these events; how racial prejudice, hate and discrimination created these historical events; and what can be done to prevent (or end) them from occurring in the world today.
In conjunction with a traveling photo exhibit on the recent atrocities in Darfur, the project includes a comprehensive panel exhibit featuring local members impacted directly during the Holocaust, plus Holocaust film and speaking events. These events will work together towards the elimination of prejudice and discrimination: to promote amicable relations among all racial, cultural, religious, age, gender, disabled, and socio-economic groups in the Chandler community. Through partnership with the City of Chandler and other local entities, the project will train community and school employees to better recognize hate- and prejudice-related discrimination, and will also include outreach to Native American, Hispanic/Latino and Asian youth communities, involving them in the education and understanding of diversity and cultural awareness around the world and in neighborhoods today.
