InSights & InPerson: Scott Levin discusses Hate, Extremism and Insurrection


Scott Levin will explore the rise of hate and extremism in the United States, from antisemitism and Islamophobia to hate directed at Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, people of color, the LGBTQ+, immigrants and other minority communities. This program will explore the danger from white extremists and demonstrate why the insurrection at the US Capitol was one of the most predictable extremist acts our country has faced. Finally, Scott will lead participants to look at what can be done to counter this hate.
