For the full hour, Ernie converses with Amy Spitalnick, Executive Director for Integrity First for America, who led the lawsuit against the white supremacists that planned the violent attacks in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017.
She discusses her involvement with the case, details of what led up to the violence, and how her team was able to successfully win the lawsuit. Spitalnick also shares her thoughts on the similarities between the violence that took place at the U.S. Capitol Building on January 6, 2021, and the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville.
Spitalnick also answers questions and offers advice on how to combat antisemitism, racism, and xenophobia, as well as the changes that need to be made to prevent further extremism from threatening our democracy.
