White Supremacy in 2021: Putting Violent Extremists on Trial
Hosted By: Congregation Beth Shalom (Northbrook, IL)
In 2017, white supremacists meticulously planned and carried out a violent attack on Charlottesville, VA that resulted in dozens of injuries and the death of Heather Heyer. Four years later, far-right extremists are even more emboldened by years of disinformation, conspiracies, and hate — made clear by the insurrection at the U.S.Capitol and record-level hate crimes and domestic terror. Integrity First for America is fighting back with its landmark Charlottesville lawsuit.
Amy Spitalnick, Integrity First for America Executive Director, will engage us in a critical conversation exploring the path from Charlottesville to the Capitol and beyond and how we hold these violent extremists accountable — starting with IFA’s Charlottesville lawsuit, Sines v. Kessler, which takes on the leaders of this violent movement and heads to trial this October.
