Three years ago, white supremacists meticulously planned and carried out a violent attack on Charlottesville that resulted in dozens of injuries and the death of Heather Heyer. Fast forward three-and-a-half years: with far-right extremists even more emboldened by years of disinformation, conspiracies, and hate, we witnessed an unprecedented attack on Congress by violent insurrectionists intent on disrupting our peaceful transition of power and harming our nation’s leaders.
Join Integrity First for America Executive Director, Amy Spitalnick, moderator John Seigenthaler, and community leaders Sabina Mohyuddin and Reverend Davie Tucker for a pressing and critical conversation hosted by Jewish Community Relations Committee, Nashville Jewish Social Justice Roundtable, and supporting sponsors. They’ll explore the path from Charlottesville to the Capitol; how this movement of violent white supremacists and other far-right extremists has grown; and, most importantly, how we bring these individuals and hate groups to account, starting with IFA’ s landmark Charlottesville lawsuit, Sines v. Kessler, which takes on the leaders of this violent movement and heads to trial this year.
