On February 11th, 2021, IFA's Amy Spitalnick, moderator John Seigenthaler, and community leaders Sabina Mohyuddin and Reverend Davie Tucker joined in a critical conversation hosted by the JCRC of Jewish Federation and Jewish Foundation of Nashville and Middle Tennessee, Nashville Jewish Social Justice Roundtable, and a broad coalition of supporting sponsors. They explored the path from Charlottesville to the Capitol; how this movement of violent white supremacists and other far-right extremists has grown; and, most importantly, how we bring these individuals and hate groups to account, starting with our landmark Charlottesville lawsuit, Sines v. Kessler, which takes on the leaders of this violent movement and heads to trial this year.
