June 18 Speaker Luncheon

Novato Republican Women

Featuring Joseph Marshall and Leland Faust

Healing Not Hate

Two men, one black and one white, engage in a lively discussion of the problems of race in America. Leland Faust is an attorney in San Francisco and he joins his friend, Joe Marshall, in his exploration of the racial divide in America. Do Americans really live in two separate worlds? There is the killing of George Floyd and calls to defund the police. There are protests for Black Lives Matter and others calling for a return to America of the past.

There are demands for increased affirmative action and for its curtailment. There is yelling and screaming and name calling, and a distinct absence of rational discourse. Too many members of both the black and white communities seem to see almost nothing the same way and act like they have nothing in common. No one stops to consider we are all citizens of the same country and our lives are inextricably intertwined.

Dr. Joseph Marshall is the co-founder of Alive & Free youth violence prevention program originally founded as the Omega Boys Club in San Francisco. Alive & Free’s mission is to keep young people free from violence and safe from incarceration. At the heart of the program is the notion that violence is a social disease with an explicit treatment process. Like disease, it is transmitted by the germs of bad information, bad instruction, bad advice and bad examples which appear to young people to be good. Alive & Free works to change beliefs, attitudes, values and actions that promote violence. At risk youth are viewed as people infected with the disease of violence and are taught how to deal with their anger, fear and pain, make healthy choices and embrace academic achievements
