In recognition of Martin Luther King Day, Dr. Peter Simi will provide an inside portrait of organized hate groups in America based on his 22 years of experience studying this issue. A range of topics will be discussed, including the reasons people join these groups and how members use social media to spread their ideas. Join us for lunch and a fascinating speaker.
