The data on this map shows flyers and banners that have been displayed by groups on the radical right. Information was compiled using a combination of social media platforms, news articles and tips submitted to the SPLC. If you would like to submit information about flyers, or any other hate incidents, please use this form.
How to use this map
The two filters by which to view the data are Group Name and Flyer Type.
The next distinction under Group Name, Ku Klux Klan, is typically listed as an ideology, with groups that fit under this broader term. However, given the Klan’s comparably narrow and rigid ideology, the fact that nearly all flyers were distributed by the Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, and the similarity between Klan group names, the Ku Klux Klan is listed as a group on this map.
The category labeled “Other” contains flyers from groups such as The Daily Stormer, The David Horowitz Freedom Center, and “It’s okay to be white,” which is not a group name but rather the content of a flyer that has been popularized on the imageboard, 4chan.
The Flyer Type view is straightforward, displaying flyers posted on college campuses separated out from those posted in public, non-campus, areas.
Banners are different than flyers in their size. Flyers are considered handheld, banners are items hung from a prominent location. All banners in 2018 were dropped in public, therefore all these incidents are under one category in “Flyer Type.”
Zooming in on the map will divide out the columns to show the specific locations flyers and banners were posted.
Hovering above the individual points will display more information about location and type of flyer.
Clicking on an individual state provides a chronological summary of that state’s flyering data at the bottom of the map.
The time scale at the top of the map can be used to change the time period for which flyering data is displayed.
Stars on the map denote state capitals.
In the graph at the bottom, the “State-by-State” view provides the ability to sort alphabetically or numerically.
To view the data of a single group (i.e. Patriot Front) simply un-check the boxes next to the other groups (i.e. Identity Evropa, Ku Klux Klan and Other). This is also applicable to the “Flyer Type” view.
