Two events in Yakima next week give people a chance to talk about negative hate talk on the internet and hate talk in general. The first Yakima Hate Crimes Forum is set for next Tuesday from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Henry Beauchamp Community Center, 1211 S. Seventh Street. Six people will be on a panel for the discussion including representatives from local police and the Yakama Nation.

Then next Wednesday another event will be held. It's called Think & Drink: One Click Away - Hate and the Internet. That event will be held from  7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Gilbert Cellars, 5 N. Front St. It's an all ages event. You need to register. You can do that at humanities.org. When you arrive at the page click on the programs tab and you'll find the link to the Think and Drink event.
