Spin Love Not Hate is an interfaith and cultural event aimed at creating dialogue across differences on the University of Maryland campus. Through speakers, tabling, and a world record-breaking dreidel spin, we hope to bring together students, faculty, staff, and the community to understand how hate on campus not only hurts individuals and their community but the campus as a whole.
