Stop the Hate on Tuesday

Hello Residents of 6 West.  This past Tuesday there was a Stop the Hate session.  This session was a deeper dive into hate crimes.  Did you know that in four states there are no hate crime laws?  You might be thinking, what is a hate crime?  A hate crime is a crime the has been committed that was motivated by hate.  For example if someone keyed a swastika into a car that is a hate crime because there is a crime being committed  (Vandalism).  But what happens if someone just puts pieces of paper with swastikas on it under windshield wipers?  That would be a bias incident.  A hate crime is always a bias incident, but a bias incident is not always a hate crime.

I hope that you will all be free to go to the next Stop the Hate with me!

On Wednesday, Dr.King, a professor at the university came to rountree and talked specifically about Stereotypes throughout the country that exist. Very eye opening conversations were had and stereotypes were discussed. If you ever have any questions about Stereotypes please, come talk to Austin or I and we can talk through them with you!! Thank you Dr. King for coming In!

Sex in the Dark

A big thank you to those residents who came down and participated in sex in the dark. A little about it, sex in the dark is a program where people of the opposite sex sit on different sides of a dark room and they build a wall in between, yo u are allowed to ask the opposite sex anything you want, annonomously!! It was a fantastic program, and I hope more of you can attend another time!
