Directory of White Supremacist Events

White supremacists organize rallies and distribute propaganda in our communities to:

  • catch the attention of people they hope to recruit into their movement – both in person and online
  • scare and threaten Black and brown people, immigrants, LGBTQ+ people, and other targets
  • increase their physical presence & presence of their ideas in the public sphere, hoping both become increasingly tolerated (and eventually normalized) by mainstream society over time
  • connect with each other and practice working together
  • feel powerful, excited, and in control

This is why we must confront them at every step.

We document these events to show patterns in recruitment and scale of the problem. Disrupting and preventing white supremacist events and propaganda is a key strategy to stop their growth. Knowing the patterns in your community equips us to act.
