First Sundays at MOT: From Hate to Hope®

We hear compelling quotes about the power of forgiveness all the time, but how often do we get the chance to really examine and even participate in a real-life instance of forgiveness?

Join us every first Sunday of the month to hear the story that began at the Museum of Tolerance, now subject of 2014 Oscar-nominated documentary short, Facing Fear.

From Hate to Hope® is a remarkable true story of the reconciliation of a perpetrator and victim of a hate crime. Featuring MOT Manager Matthew Boger and MOT volunteer speaker Tim Zaal, this presentation examines the roots of prejudice and discrimination and the ability to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Using a Question and Answer session, Matthew and Tim engage the audience in a discussion of redemption and the power of forgiveness.
