Taking on White Nationalist Violence

February 19 , 6:30 pm

Waves of white nationalist violence have spread across the nation, from Charlottesville to Pittsburgh, El Paso and beyond. Now, a landmark lawsuit against the organizers of the 2017 Charlottesville march is taking on the leadership of this movement — asserting that they intentionally coordinated the violence that erupted, thus breaking the law.

Led by Roberta Kaplan (lead counsel on the Supreme Court case that led to the legalization of same-sex marriage) and Karen Dunn (a former federal prosecutor in Virginia), the legal action — filed against a broad range of neo-Nazis, white supremacists and affiliated hate groups — exposes the individuals and organizations driving the wave of white supremacist hate and dismantles the infrastructure at the center of their movement. The suit is supported by the civil rights nonprofit Integrity First for America.

Join us for a discussion of the lawsuit and its potential to turn back the tide of hate with:
