Today’s guest is the remarkable Mindy Corporon with SevenDays, whose father and son were killed in a hate crime in 2014 outside the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park, KS. Ever since, Mindy has become a champion of building bridges with people of other faiths and defeating hatred with lovingkindness. SevenDays 2017 will kick off with events the week of April 16, culminating in the SevenDays walk in Downtown KC on Monday night, April 24. Learn more at GiveSevenDays.org.
