Take Action Against Hate Banquet

The Take Action Against Hate Banquet is being held on Tuesday, October 16 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm in Cataldo Hall at Gonzaga University. Every year, the Gonzaga University Institute for Hate Studies gives an individual and organizational award to an individual and organization who have been courageous and creative in challenging hate. This year we are recognizing Rev. Happy Watkins from the New Hope Baptist Church and the Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations. Our keynote speaker is the Venerable Geshe Thupten Phelgye who is the founds of the Universal Compassion Movement.

About nwchr

The Northwest Coalition for Human Rights (NWCHR) exists to facilitate connections and communication among organizations and individuals who are engaged in human rights and social justice work in the Northwest region of the United States, with special focus on the Inland Northwest. The coalition, inspired by Bill Wassmuth's former Northwest Coalition Against Malicious Harassment, will give strength to those working at the local level by allowing them to share resources, information, and ideas, as well as making them part of a larger support system. The University of Idaho Office of Human Rights, Access, and Inclusion (HRAI) in Moscow serves as the administrative home for the NWCHR, and the Coalition strives to build strong membership from throughout Idaho and eastern Washington, as well as from other parts of the Northwest region. All are welcome to join NWCHR and give their input.
