The threat of hate and political violence has reached an urgent new level. Hate groups, white supremacists, and anti-government extremists present a clear danger to our country. Violent white supremacy is the most persistent and lethal domestic threat, according to a report released by the Department of Homeland Security in October 2020.
Evidence of the spiraling threat became clear as a plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, start a civil war, and detonate explosives was uncovered and thwarted by the FBI and state law enforcement.

Not In Our Town, Over Zero, the Divided Community Project, and more organizations to be announced soon, will present action tools and communications strategies to help communities address crisis and conflict as communities seek to address racism and prevent violence.
