Lev B’Lev Speaker Series
Featuring Rachel Brown

January 12 @ 1pm, Biran Beit Midrash

Rachel Brown is a former fellow with the US Holocaust Memorial Museum and the Founder and Executive Director of Over Zero, an organization established to create long-term societal resilience to violence and positive, peaceful coexistence. Rachel is the author of Defusing Hate: A Strategic Communication Guide to Counteract Dangerous Speech, which brings together insights from diverse fields of expertise — from marketing to cognitive neuroscience — to support practitioners seeking to design communications-based interventions for atrocity prevention. She received her undergraduate degree in International Relations from Tufts University.

Rachel will be appearing at Adas as part of our Lev B’Lev speaker series on Saturday, January 12 from 1:00 to 2:30 pm. As Lev B’Lev continues to explore hate in America, Rachel will bring a communications perspective that will help us understand how dangerous speech incites hate and reveal communications strategies for bringing about positive change for individuals, societies, and governments. She’ll also share lessons learned from her work in Kenya and around the world.
