The events in Charlottesville last year showed the whole country that the alt-right presents a unique threat to society.
Despite the horrifying impact the alt-right has, and can have, it is loosely defined, poorly understood, and operates in the shadows of society. HOPE not hate exists to take on these extremists, and that starts by knowing everything we can about them. That’s why I’m really excited to share an important piece of news with you:
Today, we’re introducing Ctrl Alt-Right Delete – a weekly newsletter devoted to understanding how the alt-right operates online.
To bring you this unparalleled insight, we’ve partnered with Melissa Ryan, a veteran political and digital expert, who has brought her expertise to digging into the alt-right’s figures, behaviour, and activities in order to make sense of their influence and capabilities.
HOPE not hate has always been at the cutting edge of research – and joining forces with Melissa is a vital step in understanding the growing threat of the alt-right and a key component to developing strategies to fight back.
We’re pleased to bring you the first new issue this coming Sunday, and it’s kicking off with a bang. Here’s a sneak peek – our lead article takes a deep dive into how the alt-right is using cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin to profit – we’re talking millions of dollars here.
Each Sunday, we’ll bring you the latest developments and news right there in your inbox – a one-stop shop to stay on top of what’s going on in the alt-right.
While there may be no shortcut to force the shutdown of the alt-right, our approach is this: the more we know, the better equipped we will be to take on our opponents, and defeat them.
