Kathryn Ervin, CSUSB professor of theatre arts, emerita, is the project director for “Stand Against Hate: A Community and Performing Arts Concert,” which will be presented at 7 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 30, at the San Bernardino Valley College Auditorium. The concert is sponsored in part by the California State Library, with the goal of increasing awareness of services offered by the state for reporting and healing trauma and hate. 

The production brings together a group of accomplished artists with a shared passion for building bridges through their art and making connections with their audience. The event will feature dance, film, spoken word and poetry. Artists representing diverse cultures and backgrounds will present selections that address differences in race, gender identity, religion and more.

According to Ervin, “Our goal is to showcase the artist’s role in educating the community about the trauma that hate is creating in our community and underline the importance of taking action through using the services provided by the state.”
