Mindy Corporon engaging in a national conversation about confronting hatred

As a publishing house, we often talk about our authors “engaging in a national conversation” as one of the primary reasons to do all the hard work of writing, editing and publishing a book. Quite simply: We want to make our world a better place with the creative and compassionate ideas we are sharing.

One author who has accomplished that, despite the trauma that transformed her life a decade ago, is Mindy Corporon. This column is simply an illustration of the many way that “national conversation” is taking place all around us.

Start with—

‘HEALING HATE: Turning Pain into Power’ That’s the name of the new public TV documentary about two courageous women who have transformed the trauma of losing loved ones through hate crimes into campaigns for community healing. Now, thanks to the staff at Kansas City public TV, the entire half-hour film is available to stream online. We’ve got that YouTube streaming link for you right here in our feature story about Mindy that we have updated since last week.

Then, here are other headlines that will intrigue and inspire you—
