HOPE not Hate conference on Trump's America: How the Far Right is Radicalizing American Politics
A CTRL ALT-RIGHT DELETE event in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, June 28, 2018
By: HOPE not Hate
On June 28, 2018, from 9AM-4:30PM HOPE not hate, along with Ctrl Alt-Right Delete, will host a day long conference in Washington, DC to discuss how the far right is radicalizing American politics.
Whether in Charlottesville or the White House, the fringe right isn't on the fringes any longer. Who are the Alt-Right, the American First right and the white supremacist right, how did they become so influential, and what needs to be done to fight back against them?
The conference will take an in depth look at why the rise of the far right matters and what it is doing to US politics. It will bring together activists, researchers, and politicians to share learnings, strategize and plan the fightback against hate in the era of Trump.
The conference will include these sessions:
• Alt-right and Social Media Manipulation featuring Christina Lopez from Media Matters and Ellie Langford from NARAL;
• Alt-right after Charlottesvile with Joe Mulhall from HOPE not hate joined by Chalie Warzel from Buzzfeed, Ryan Lenz from Southern Poverty Law Center, Angelo Carusone from Media Matters, and Brandi Collins from Color of Change;
• Alt-right and the Mid-terms featuring Michelle Goldberg from the New York Times, Rob Flaherty from Priorities USA, Jessica Post from the DLCC and Matthew McGregor from HOPE not hate.

HOPE not hate is the UK's largest anti-racist organisation and premier anti-fascist campaign.
It has been instrumental in the political defeat of several far-fight political parties over in the UK, in the banning of a dangerous neo-nazi movement by the British government, and recently led the campaign to prevent UK Independence Party (UKIP) leader, Nigel Farage – a close friend of Donald Trump and prominent Fox News contributor – from being elected to the British parliament. More recently, it helped defeat a pan-European attempt by far-right activists to harass humanitarian rescue ships in the Mediterranean.
HOPE not hate also works at a community level, where it has pioneered techniques to engage divided neighborhoods, developing shared identities and using Socratic questioning and empathetic listening to bridge divides.
Ctrl Alt-Right Delete is a weekly newsletter with more than 14,000 subscribers devoted to understanding how the right operates online and developing strategies and tactics to fight back. It is edited by Melissa Ryan in partnership with HOPE not hate.
