Join the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center and the Jewish Community Relations Council of the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati for Hate at Home: Understanding the Rise in Violent Extremism in the U.S. on THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 4, AT 12 P.M. via Zoom.

The event will feature renowned speakers Dr. Arie W. Kruglanski, a Distinguished Professor of Psychology and scholar studying violent extremism, and Shannon Foley Martinez, a former violent white supremacist who has two decades of experience in developing community resource platforms aimed at inoculating individuals against violence-based lifestyles and ideologies.

Moderated by JCRC Director Jackie Congedo, this intimate and compelling discussion will focus on efforts to combat radicalization and rehabilitate violent extremists. Speakers will explore why individuals fall prey to extremist movements and ideologies, how the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated violent extremist recruitment and radicalization, and why healthy societies must prevent and take on extremist movements to function. 

This program is presented in partnership with the CINCINNATI REGIONAL COALITION AGAINST HATE and the JCRC’s LEADERS IN LIGHT, a first-of-its kind, year-long leadership development program that will create a network of informed and influential change agents.
