"That’s So BLEEP"
“That’s So BLEEP” is PEP's most requested program and is designed to raise awareness of the relationship between hate speech, prejudice, and oppression. The program analyzes the roots of hate speech and strives to dissolve the hate and bigotry clearly evident in the 21st century. By revealing the impact of hate speech and its connection to genocide, the “That’s so BLEEP” program uses the stories and struggles of our past and present to unify and rebuild communities through words and actions. This program can be requested by any campus organization interested in learning how they can be an agent for positive social change.
