Suing Neo-Nazis: Integrity First for America, with Amy Spitalnick
ENGLISH CORNER, CON LINDA JIMÉNEZ – This week’s trivia question: What impact has IFA’s case had even before going to trial?
(On October 25 the long-awaited trial of those responsible for the violent events in Charlottesville, Virginia, finally began. The trial has received international attention and has been featured on primetime news programs in many countries, including Spain. In February we interviewed Amy Spitalnick, the Executive Director of Integrity First for America, the organization behind this lawsuit. Because of its timeliness, we have decided to post that program again this week, so that you can learn more about the organization’s activities and what is behind the lawsuit.)
Integrity First for America (IFA) is a nonpartisan nonprofit organization based in New York and dedicated to holding those accountable who threaten longstanding principles of American democracy—including the country’s commitment to civil rights and equal justice. IFA is backing the landmark federal lawsuit against the two dozen neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and hate groups responsible for the August 2017 violence in Charlottesville.
This week we’re speaking with IFA’s Executive Director Amy Spitalnick, about the organization and what we all can do to take action to protect the integrity of democracy anywhere in the world where it is threatened by hate groups responsible for rising antisemitism, racism, and white supremacy.
