National and Community Leaders Discuss How To End White Supremacist Violence
By Katrina Mulligan, Brette Steele, Simon Clark, Asha Padmanabhan, and Rachel Hunkler May 7, 2021, 4:41 pm

Although white supremacist violence in the United States is not new, in recent years, it has become a top national security threat. In October 2020, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security concluded that racially and ethnically motivated violent extremists, particularly white supremacist extremists, are “the most persistent and lethal threat in the Homeland.” The Center for American Progress and the McCain Institute for International Leadership, after engaging for a year with a coalition representing the communities most affected by this threat and those working to defeat it, developed a report titled “A National Policy Blueprint To End White Supremacist Violence.” This video presents highlights from an event to introduce the blueprint and place it in conversation with national and local leaders.
Produced by Meghan Miller, Hai-Lam Phan, and Jasmine Hardy.
Katrina Mulligan is the acting vice president for National Security and International Policy at the Center for American Progress. Brette Steele is the senior director for Preventing Targeted Violence at the McCain Institute for International Leadership. Simon Clark is a senior fellow for National Security and International Policy at the Center. Asha Padmanabhan is a fellow for National Security and International Policy at the Center. Rachel Hunkler is the program manager for National Security and Preventing Targeted Violence at the McCain Institute.
