ICYMI: Charles Koch Institute, Anti-Defamation League Create Initiative to Combat Extremism

Amid growing divisiveness in our culture, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), Center for American Progress, and several other organizations have joined together to create “Communities Overcoming Extremism (COE): The After Charlottesville Project,” a national initiative to explore how to address intolerance.

As part of the initiative, COE will hold two summits for public and private sector leaders where they will discuss new ideas and strategies for combating extremism. The fall summit is set for November 28-30 at Washington University in St. Louis and a second is planned for the spring of 2019 in California’s Bay Area.

“We’re proud to join these partners in convening researchers, educators, community leaders, and rights activists to understand the tools needed to foster a culture where people help, rather than harm one another,” said Charles Koch Institute Director of Free Expression Sarah Ruger. “The question of how we see past differences and respect the dignity of every individual benefits from open and courageous exploration.”

The Fetzer Institute, The Aspen Institute’s Justice & Society Program, Hope Not Hate, and National Immigration Forum are also part of the initiative. A full list of advisory board members, and more information on COE, is available at ADL’s site.
