Season of Diversity Coming to Santa Clarita
The Hart District collaborates with the city of Santa Clarita each year to present "A Season of Diversity," a series of events and activities that runs from October through January.  This series focuses on celebrating the rich variety of cultures found in the Santa Clarita Valley.

Each year, the city brings outstanding speakers and performers to the community, and several of these take place at Hart District venues. On Oct. 27, Saugus High School will host "From Hate to Hope," the remarkable story of Tim Zaal, a former neo-Nazi. Tim perpetrated a violent hate crime and years later found himself sharing the same workplace with his former victim.

In this presentation, both men come together to talk about their difficult journey toward reconciliation. The program starts at 7 p.m. in the S Lecture Hall on campus and is open to the public free of charge.
