Community Plans “Love Lives Here” Event At The Florida Holocaust Museum

Mayor Kriseman, community leaders, and faith organizations are holding a “Love Lives Here” event at The Florida Holocaust Museum in St. Petersburg on March 9 to stand in solidarity with those who have been targeted by acts of hate. This event has a goal of encouraging a community-wide response by institutions and individuals to create greater understanding and connection rather than fear of differences.
We’re joining with other groups to convene “Love Lives Here: No Place For Hate” at The Florida Holocaust Museum on March 9th at 6:30 pm.The goals for the evening are pretty simple: We want to stand in solidarity with those who are being targeted by hate and make a statement that love is more powerful. We want to learn from each other how to help those in fear’s way stay safe. And we want to counter the fears we harbor within ourselves by meeting people who walk different walks than our own.
This evening is not about politics, it’s about people. People across the political spectrum can agree that threats, attacks and abuse are not the sign of a healthy society. This evening is not about identifying bullies for counterattack but standing together to show that Love Lives Here in our community, that it is No Place for Hate.
We’ll start with a diverse panel of faith leaders discussing with the attendees what it means to show solidarity to those being targeted for their faith. Then we’ll do some things to help participants build bridges and break down barriers between themselves and people they might think of as “different.” Then we’ll leave with resources and ideas on how to carry this spirit outside of the room. Please join us!
