How Antisemitism and Racism Fuel White Nationalism

As Executive Director of the Western States Center, he has transformed the organization into a national hub for innovative responses to white nationalism, antisemitism, and structural inequality, pointing us toward a world where everyone can live, love, worship, and work free from fear. In his 30+ year civil rights career, Eric has worked with community groups, government and business leaders, human rights advocates, and philanthropists.
