Fueling Extremism in a Wired World

September 27, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Public Program United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

Nazis used radio and film; today’s extremists use social media. Then as now, new technology provides extremists with the unchecked ability to spread hate and recruit followers. In recent months, “lone-wolf” attackers have carried out deadly attacks without any in-person contact with terror networks. What responsibility do journalists, technology companies, governments, and individuals have to keep the world safe? The time to counter these hateful messages is now.
