President, Council on Foreign Relations

In God, Guns, and Sedition, Bruce Hoffman and Jacob Ware offer the definitive account of the rise of far-right terrorism in the United States—and how to counter it.

In recent years shocking acts of terrorism such as the 2015 mass murder in a historic Black church in Charleston and the January 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol have shone a spotlight on far-right extremism in America. These incidents are not isolated; they are part of a enduring pattern where conspiracy theories and radical ideologies like white supremacism, racism, antisemitism, xenophobia, and anti-government sentiments converge, posing a persistent threat to democracy.

Members are encouraged to include their high school- or college-age children or grandchildren in this event. All members are welcome to attend.
