“Once in a generation, there is a trial that fundamentally changes our nation. This will be that trial—laying down a clear marker against violence and hate.”

White nationalist violence is on the rise—from Charlottesville to Pittsburgh to El Paso. One innovative legal strategy is taking on the leadership of this violent movement. Integrity First for America’s suit holds accountable the neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and hate groups responsible for the August 2017 Charlottesville violence. The suit, filed on behalf of community members who were injured, is going to trial in October 2020, with the potential to bankrupt and dismantle the leaders and hate groups at the center of this movement. Join leading litigator Roberta Kaplan and Integrity First for America Executive Director Amy Spitalnick for a discussion of this landmark case.
