Taking White Supremacy to Court: The Charlottesville Case
Monday, August 10, 7pm
Presented by Jewish Community Relations Council in partnership with Integrity First for America. Co-sponsored by many area organizations including the Pozez JCC
Three years ago this month, neo-Nazis and white supremacists descended on Charlottesville, VA for a weekend of violence - which was no accident – rather, it was the result of months of planning. Integrity First for America (IFA), in partnership with a world-class legal team, is uniquely taking on the neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and hate groups at the center of this violent movement, holding them accountable in federal court for the violence they brought to Charlottesville.
IFA’s lawsuit — scheduled to go to trial this October — provides a tangible way to take action against the white supremacy and extremism that’s poisoning this country and has the potential to bankrupt and dismantle the leaders and hate groups at the center of this movement — which is key, given their disturbing connections to the broader cycle of white supremacist violence.
Join Eric Ward for a conversation with IFA Executive Director Amy Spitalnick and attorneys Roberta Kaplan and Karen Dunn for an overview of this landmark case and the fight against white supremacy, anti-Semitism, racism, and other forms of hate.
