LE ONLY: Anti-Government Extremist Movements: Who They Are and How to Combat the Growing Threat
March 17 from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
FBI Director Chris Wray told the Senate this month that anti-government violent extremism including militia extremism and the sovereign citizen movement has experienced a “huge uptick” in the past year, with some of the movements represented in the attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6. This webinar will delve into what Wray called a “broad bucket” of movements grounded in ideologies ranging from eco-fascism to conspiracy theories, and discuss how law enforcement can better recognize threats tied to anti-government extremism.
