Voices of Vigilance: The Rise of Hate and Extremism

Since the fall of 2016, more than 200 college campuses in 42 states have been targeted by white nationalist hate groups. A 197% increase in the number of anti-Muslim hate groups has occurred since 2015. The number of murders committed by white supremacists more than doubled in 2017.

To what is this alarming rise in hate and extremism attributed? Join MCC's Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights Project as it welcomes Brian Levin, Director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at the University of California, San Bernardino, to explore this question at its annual Voices of Vigilance program. Levin, Professor of Criminal Justice, is a court certified expert on extremism in the United States and England. He has appeared on every network and cable television evening news broadcast and various network magazine shows on the subjects of civil rights, criminal law, and extremism.
