In August, what has been referred to as one of the largest gatherings of white nationalists in recent times took place in Charlottesville, Virginia. The rally ended in violence, and showcased blatant displays of antisemitism, racism, and bigotry. Our guest experts, who monitor and respond to hate group activity, will provide a timely and contextual update on the status of these groups. They will also present practices and resources that can inform appropriate and effective responses to counter displays of hatred.
