The Anti-Defamation League Mountain States Region’s Annual Meeting will take place on Wednesday, June 13 at 7 pm at the Hebrew Educational Alliance in Denver. Featured speaker Christian Picciolini is an Emmy Award-winning director and producer, a published author, TEDx speaker, global peace advocate, and a reformed extremist. The meeting will also feature the investiture of Melinda Quiat as Regional Board Chair.
After leaving the white supremacist skinhead movement he helped build during the 1980s and 90s, Christian earned a degree in international relations from DePaul University and has spoken all over the world, sharing his unique and extensive knowledge, teaching all who are willing to learn about building greater peace through empathy and compassion. His involvement in the early American skinhead movement is chronicled in his memoir WHITE AMERICAN YOUTH: My Descent into America’s Most Violent Hate Movement—and How I Got Out (Hachette Books, 2018).
Tickets are $18 and include a dessert reception following the program (kosher dietary laws observed).
