How Antisemitism and Racism Fuel White Nationalism
An online presentation from Eric Ward, Senior Fellow, Southern Poverty Law Center
Eric Ward is a nationally-recognized expert on the relationship between authoritarian movements, hate violence, and preserving inclusive democracy. 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. He is the author of multiple written works credited with key narrative shifts, including “Skin in the Game: How Antisemitism Animates White Nationalism.”
Former NFL Super Bowl Champion and proud native son Roland Williams will challenge us to take the steps necessary to move from a day of education and dialogue to a life of positive action.
