Speakers will also discuss the federal criminal and counterterrorism statutes currently available to hold violent white nationalists accountable, and how a new federal domestic terrorism charge would violate the civil rights of communities targeted for hate by white supremacists, in the same way the PATRIOT Act disproportionately surveilled and criminalized Arab, Black, Brown, and Muslim communities after 9/11.
