Words and Symbols of Hate

The 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia and the 2018 Tree of Life Synagogue Shooting were significant moments in recent United States history, as they revealed a persistence of hatred and overt discrimination that some Americans believed was a thing of the past. This presentation will focus on the recent increase in hate speech, hate symbols and hate crimes we are witnessing in our schools and communities. Issues such as First Amendment rights and limitations will be discussed as they apply to hate speech and nonverbal symbols. Julia Scallero served as a chairperson of the Social Studies department at North Salem High School for 8 years and taught in that district for 36 years. She is a recipient of the Louis Yavner Teacher Award for Teaching about the Holocaust and Other Human Rights Violations and she is a former president of the Westchester Council for the Social Studies. Ms. Scallero participated in an educator’s study trip to Germany and was a member of the HHREC’s committee which designed an interdisciplinary Holocaust curriculum for high school students. Sponsored by The Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center.
