Healing from Hate Director Peter Hutchison

Monday, February 22, 2021

Enjoy our virtual screening from Feb. 20-22, and then join us for a chat with the director!

Peter Hutchison spent several years working with anti-hate activists Life After Hate, a group of former neo-Nazis and Skinheads now working to de-radicalize (or as they prefer, “re-humanize”) White Nationalists.

In the midst of disturbing and uncertain times, Hutchison says, “they’ve shown me—time and time again—that there’s a hopeful way forward.”

We’ll meet Peter Hutchison and hear about his experience with Life After Hate, and ask him our questions about his film.

Prior to our meeting with the director, follow our link to view the film anytime from Saturday, Feb. 20 at 6 p.m. to Monday, Feb. 22 at 6 p.m.
