A Blueprint for Ending White Supremacist Violence
White supremacist violence in the United States is not new, but in recent years it has become a top national security threat. In October 2020, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) concluded that racially and ethnically motivated violent extremists, particularly white supremacist extremists, are “the most persistent and lethal threat in the Homeland.”
To help address this issue, the Center for American Progress and the McCain Institute for International Leadership conducted a yearlong research project, convening a broad coalition of more than 150 leaders from the communities most affected by white supremacist violence, along with civil rights advocates and experts in law enforcement, counter-terrorism, and national security. The result is a blueprint that reflects a broad consensus on policies to tackle white supremacist violence while also respecting civil liberties and protecting vulnerable communities.
Please join the Center for American Progress and the McCain Institute for a discussion on how to end white supremacist violence. The event will begin with a discussion between members of Congress moderated by former Senator Doug Jones, followed by a panel of experts from the national security, faith, technology policy, racial justice, immigration and civil rights spaces.
