Her TED talks have garnered over three million views. In her book, The Opposite of Hate: A Field Guide to Repairing Our Humanity, Kohn researches the roots of hate. She meets with terrorists, white supremacists and even some of her own Twitter trolls, learning some surprising lessons. She confronts her own shameful moments as she points the way toward change.
