The recent violence in Charlottesville is one painfully visible reminder of the division, distrust, and hateful extremism that is on the rise in the United States. Since January, there have been more than 65 bomb threats against Jewish Community Centers in 27 states, and as our politics become more divided, the time for critical, civil dialogue is now.
Join the City Club of the Mahoning Valley for its first Views & Brews event, a free discussion on extremism, racism, and violence in America today, the root causes, and what we can do as citizens to counter this growing threat.
