Monday, June 4, 2018 at 6:30 p.m.
National Underground Railroad Freedom Center
50 East Freedom Way, Cincinnati, OH 45202
The Cincinnati Regional Coalition Against Hate invites Cincinnati’s diverse community leadership and constituents to a dialogue with Eric Ward, Director of the Western States Center, an organization at the forefront of building a progressive movement and just society since 1987. Ward is a national expert on the relationship between hate violence and preserving democratic institutions, governance, and inclusive societies, and he has extensively studied, researched and written about the modern white nationalist movement.
Ward will tell the story of his civil rights work when the white nationalist movement was engaged in violent paramilitary activity that sought to undermine democratic governance in the Pacific Northwest. He’ll share his learnings about how antisemitism forms the theoretical core of white nationalism, and how understanding the antisemitism at the root of this movement is key to opposing it.
