Healing From Hate: Battle for the Soul of the Nation

Co-sponsored by our Racial Justice Action Committee

Healing From Hate, Battle for the Soul of the Nation is a documentary film that takes a deep dive into the minds of men who gravitate toward white-supremacist hate groups. Focusing on the bold work of the group Life After Hate – an organization founded by former Skinheads and neo-Nazis now engaged in de-radicalizing violent extremists on the front lines, the film examines the root causes of hate group activity.

Healing from Hate is at once a document of racism and white-male grievance in America, and a portrait of a group of people working together to heal communities torn apart by hate and division.

A link to view the film from home anytime between Friday, March 5 and Sunday, March 14 will be sent to all registrants. Join a virtual panel discussion featuring among others Sammy Rangel, one of the members of Life after Hate, on Friday, March 12 from 7 – 8:30 pm. A separate link for the panel discussion will be sent to all registrants in advance of the event.

Net proceeds will go to Life After Hate and the MA Poor People’s Campaign. This program is presented by Mass Peace Action’s Racial Justice & Decolonization Working Group and the Social Justice Ministries Council of the Harvard Unitarian Universalist Church, as part of the Dismantling White Supremacy Film Series.
