New URI Initiative:  Talking Back to Hate

A new campaign that United Religions Initiative is launching called Talking Back to Hate.  We are inviting local, national and international partners to join with us in promoting this campaign to counter hate speech, discrimination and bullying through education, advocacy and positive action. Sarah Talcott Blair would love to speak with those interested about the opportunity and to hear about the efforts you are currently involved in that relate to this work to respond to hate. Some of our confirmed partners include the San Francisco Interfaith Council, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Jewish Community Relations Council, the World Sikh Organization – Canada, and the Peace Alliance.  How can the Interfaith Council of Contra Costa County as a URI Circle get involved?

If you or your community are interested, contact Sarah Talcott Blair, Talking Back to Hate Campaign Coordinator of the United Religions Initiative at  or visit
