Extremism: What You Need to Know in 2021


Thursday January 14

Time (Eastern Time)

2:00 PM  –  3:00 PM

Our nation has become increasingly polarized, resulting in a rise in extremist views and actions on both the left and the right. As the new year begins, join ADL, the Museum, and The New York Board of Rabbis for a timely and important discussion about both the challenge of extremism today and the opportunities to push back via civil society, government regulation, and reforms by social media companies.

Featured Panelists:

  • Talia Lavin, journalist and author of Culture Warlords: My Journey Into the Dark Web of White Supremacy;
  • Oren Segal, Vice President of ADL’s Center on Extremism; and
  • Eric Ward, Executive Director of the Western States Center and Senior Fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center and Race Forward.

The discussion will be moderated by Rabbi Joseph Potasnik, Executive Vice President of The New York Board of Rabbis, and Jack Kliger, President & CEO of the Museum.
