While we remain in our homes to flatten the curve and protect ourselves from the spread of the coronavirus, we’re using communications technology and social media to keep working, stay connected, and find entertainment. But we’re not the only ones benefiting from these technologies—hate groups are also using them to their advantage.

Amy Spitalnick, Executive Director of Integrity First for America (IFA), and Rabbi Shira will explore how far-right extremist groups are exploiting this pandemic to spread fear and hate online and off and learn about measures we can take to stop it and to protect ourselves and vulnerable populations. Spitalnick will also discuss IFA’s groundbreaking lawsuit against the leaders of the white supremacist movement for the August 2017 Charlottesville violence.
