America is grappling with a crisis of violent extremism: flashpoints like Charlottesville, Pittsburgh, El Paso and the Capitol insurrection, but also the more subtle but equally dangerous normalization of extremism through attacks on our public health, election and education officials and increasingly widespread conspiracies and disinformation.

Join JCRC executive director Jeremy Burton in conversation with Amy Spitalnick, executive director of Integrity First for America, which successfully took on the Charlottesville neo-Nazis in court, and the Rev. Willie Bodrick, senior pastor of the Twelfth Baptist Church in Roxbury, where Martin Luther King Jr. once preached, to discuss how extremism has seeped into the mainstream and what we can do about it.

We had the chance to meet with Spitalnick in October 2020 to hear about the case her team was building against the neo-Nazis, white supremacists and hate groups responsible for the Unite the Right violence; now, just months after IFA’s historic victory securing multimillion-dollar judgments on behalf of Charlottesville community members who were injured, Spitalnick will join us to share lessons from their case and discuss how we can push back on the normalization of extremism in our communities.
