Bellingham City Club Program May 25th, 2016
2015 The Year of Hate and Extremism: Polarizing Rhetoric, Shifting Demographics and Heightened Awareness of Inequities

It seems that by watching TV news, browsing social media, and talking to that one cousin no one likes to mention, we are exposed to hateful language and ideas more and more in American life. But these ideas do not come out of thin air  organized hate groups are growing in our country and this months guest will tell us why.

Lecia Brooks, Outreach Director of the Southern Poverty Law Center, the premier U.S. organization monitoring the activities of domestic hate groups and other extremists, will join us from Montgomery, Alabama to explain how the SPLC defines hate groups, tracks them and what exactly results from their efforts. Lecia will focus on how polarizing rhetoric, shifting demographics and a heightened awareness of inequities help create the political climate we are currently experiencing.

Ms. Brooks leads the SPLCs efforts on key initiatives and social justice issues. She also serves as director of the Civil Rights Memorial Center in Montgomery, Alabama. Prior to joining SPLC in 2004 she worked 12 years for the National Conference for Community and Justice.

Join us on Wednesday, May 25, 2016 for City Clubs annual meeting at 11:30 a.m.
