IREHR Impact at Jewish Education Day - 5.0 out of 5 based on 2 votes

IREHR's Leonard Zeskind gave a workshop on "White Nationalists and neo-Nazis in the Kansas-Missouri Region" at a Day of Discovery held at the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park, Kansas.  Among those white nationalists he highlighted in his talk were the National Socialist Movement, the Council of Conservative Citizens, Alex Linder's website Vanguard News Network website, and Jamie Kelso's radio program.  He cited Eric Bishop's refusal to follow in his father's Tim Bishop's "stormtrooper" path, and other signs of opposition to white nationalism.  Around 50 people attended the workshop.
