Webcast: The Year in Hate

 

SPLC President Richard Cohen and Editor of SPLC's Intelligence Report Mark Potok will host a live webcast about the recently released Year in Hate report. This year's report outlines an alarming trend — a 48% growth in the number of hate groups operating in the United States since 2000. The count now stands at 888 — a record high.

The anti-immigration fervor in our country is a significant factor in the increase of hate groups and their activities. Mark is one of the harshest critics of the anti-immigration rhetoric of pundits like Lou Dobbs. He and Richard will describe how SPLC stands strong against the hate, racism and intolerance infecting America. They will also answer your questions during the 30-minute audio webcast.
