FULL OF HATE:
The Toll of Violent Extremism
January 25, 2018, 6:00-8:15 p.m.
SPC Seminole Campus Conference Center
Hate groups are on the rise – as is the violence their members generate. Since the violent marches last August in Charlottesville, Va., white nationalists, neo-Nazis and sovereign militias have moved out of the shadows, spewing messages of hate on the street, in mass media and on the internet. Why do people join violent hate groups, and how do they affect American politics? Moreover, how do they impact the lives of those they hate? Attendees learned about the journey of a former violent far-right extremist and heard from a distinguished panel representing minority groups as they explored those questions in depth.
