Next webinar: Thursday 5/6/21
from 9-10:30 AM

Cancel Culture: How is this popular movement ripping the very fabric of this country?

It has dramatically altered the lives of people like Harvey Weinstein, Charlie Rose and Bill Cosby, has been utilized in advocating for the toppling of Confederate monuments, has invaded professional sports, legislatures, universities, classrooms, large and small communities alike.

Cancel Culture is a modern form of ostracism in which someone is thrust out of social or professional circles – whether it be online, on social media, or in person. Those who are subject to this ostracism are said to have been “cancelled.” It is a form of boycotting involving an individual (often a celebrity) who is deemed to have acted or spoken in a questionable or controversial manner.

It need not involve the justice system, due process or formal inquiries, and unfortunately easily lends itself to highly emotional behavior, bullying or mob rule.

A fascinating panel of people experienced in this phenomenon has been assembled to discuss how we are all affected and can become victims. Learn how we can curb its damaging impact.

PANEL:

Tom Loffredo

Tom is the managing shareholder of GrayRobinson’s Fort Lauderdale office. He is a commercial litigator whose practice has a specific emphasis on labor and employment matters on behalf of management and corporate clients, banking and finance litigation, appellate practice and class-action litigation.

Annie Seifullah

Annie is an attorney in the firm of C.A. Goldberg in New York City. She graduated from CUNY Law School where she developed a passion for anti-violence advocacy. Annie’s ability to fiercely advocate for and connect to her clients is an outcome of being a survivor of intimate partner violence and a former client of C.A. Goldberg, PLLC. She is living proof of our mission to turn victims into warriors.

Rene Cantu

Rene is with Equality Florida as the business outreach manager, working to cultivate relationships with the business community throughout the state. His community involvement has included serving on the Board of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce where he chairs the Gay and Lesbian Business Exchange.

MODERATOR:

Patrick Harris

Patrick is Vice President and COO of  Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale, a complex district in downtown Fort Lauderdale, comprising Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale, the Riverwalk Linear Park and the Downtown Riverwalk District including 10 parks as well as a lush tropical waterfront in the downtown center of an urban metropolis. Among other affiliations, he is a Member of the Board of Directors of Tower Forum.
