Event Description

De-Radicalizing Violent Extremists in America

A talk with Dr. Alina Palimaru, Associate Policy Researcher at the RAND Corporation, and Jeff Schoep, ex-leader of the National Socialist Movement (neo-Nazis) and founder of Beyond Barriers, an organization committed to countering extremism in America

Dr. Alina Palimaru, in her work with the RAND Corporation, has been studying how people are drawn to extremist hate groups and coming up with real life practices to de-radicalize those who have been brainwashed by racist propaganda. Joining her is Jeff Schoep, who led the largest Nazi organization for twenty years before exiting the organization and forming Beyond Barriers, a non-profit set up to counter the very extremism he practiced for decades. The discussion will be followed by a Q&A.

This event is sponsored by the Laurie Wagman Initiative in Jewish Studies.
