Professor Vicki Meloney presented the origins of Replace-the-Hate and hosed a hands on workshop at the 8th annual Commission on Human Diversity Conference at Kutztown University. Participants used hands-on techniques to create cardboard printing plates to make signs that read “Cultivate Kindness” and “Replace-the-Hate”. By using custom foam stamps and bright colored markers the participants were able to personalize their posters.
The Kutztown University Commission on Human Diversity facilitates the development of an environment in which members of the university community are valued and their differences honored. Understanding for and among all groups is pursued through the arrangement and support of special activities such as open forums, diversity dialogues and education workshops that promote awareness and honor of each other’s differences.
