ACS At-Large: How to Tackle the White Nationalist Threat Without Harming Communities of Color and Religious Minorities?
The ACS At-Large, Austin, Bay Area, Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, DC, Los Angeles, Madison, Michigan, Puget Sound, and Western New York Lawyer Chapters and the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights invite you to an important discussion about domestic terrorism and best ways to tackle white nationalist violence. In the wake of the insurrection on January 6, 2021, many politicians are calling for a new Domestic Terrorism law. This discussion will explore lessons learned from the attack on the Capital, and also the devastating harms inflicted by the PATRIOT Act on Black, Brown, Muslim, and Arab American communities following 9/11, and the ways a new federal domestic terrorism charge today may well adversely impact civil rights in similar ways.
