Global Project Against Hate and Extremism co-founders Heidi Beirich and Wendy Via were in Pittsburgh last week to participate in the first annual Eradicate Hate Global Summit.

Heidi spoke on two panels: The Wingspan of ‘Violent’ Extremism, where she discussed the threats of violent extremism today and ways in which government and civil society can address those threats; and Understanding the Militia Violent Threat where she spoke about how the modern militia movement has changed over the years and joined forces with other extremist individuals and groups, including white supremacists and conspiracy theorists.

She also moderated The Virus of Hate: COVID-19 as a Breeding Ground for Extremism, which explored how COVID-19 has contributed to the rise of extremism and given hate groups the opportunity to reach and radicalize more people.

The Eradicate Hate Global Summit grew from the October 2018 antisemitic attack at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life Synagogue, where a gunman massacred 11 people and wounded others. The Summit brought together experts from government, academia, law, the nonprofit sector, corporations, and journalism. Learn more.
