WHITE SUPREMACY IN 2021: Putting Violent Extremists on Trial
DATE: June 4 | 12 PM EDT
WHERE: Live Webinar
Registration Required CLICK HERE
 
In August of 2017, neo-Nazis and white supremacists stormed the city of Charlottesville, leaving death and trauma in their wake. The violence was a wakeup call for many Americans about the rise of right-wing extremism in our midst. Tragically, that threat has only grown in the years sense, with violent attacks devastating communities from Poway to Pittsburgh, El Paso to Atlanta. But we are not powerless. In just a few months, a groundbreaking lawsuit against the organizers of the Charlottesville attack goes to trial, with the potential to bankrupt and dismantle the hate groups at the center of this movement.
 
Join us for a panel discussion on the history of racial violence in America and how this Charlottesville lawsuit could serve as a model for holding accountable the forces of violent hate and white supremacy.
 

 
We’ll be joined by:
·        Amy Spitalnick, the Executive Director of the organization behind the lawsuit, Integrity First for America
·        Charles Chavis, Assistant Professor of Conflict Resolution and History and the Founder and Director of the John Mitchell Jr. Program for History Justice and Race at George Mason University
·        Rabbi Joe Prass, Director of the Weinberg Center for Holocaust Education, will offer opening remarks and share the reactions of Holocaust survivors and their families to images from Charlottesville and the US Capitol.
.        Rev. John Vaughn,  Executive Pastor of the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta.
