Isabel Garcia of Stop the Hate Collective at DGT

May 20 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm MST

by Carolyn Classen, blogger

“Ms. Garcia, of the Stop the Hate Collective, will discuss the GOP and right wing effort to spread lies and misinformation about migrants, the border, and our LBGTQ+ community, just to win elections. The resulting media focus on the border and immigration alarmism distracts the polity from addressing the serious issues we face around education, climate change, civil rights and democracy, worker rights, student debt, etc.
