Brotherhood Speaker Series: “The Fight Against Hate”
Temple Beth Sholom Brotherhood Speaker Series Zoom Event presents Amy Spitalnik, Executive Director of Integrity First for America, the group that has filed lawsuits against the Nazi’s involved with the Charlottesville march in 2018.

Integrity First for America (IFA) is a nonpartisan nonprofit organization dedicated to holding those accountable who threaten longstanding principles of our democracy—including our country’s commitment to civil rights and equal justice.

Using the courts, and the court of public opinion, IFA seeks to protect the integrity of our democracy by fighting back against efforts to dismantle the norms that have kept America strong.

Once in a generation, there is a trial that fundamentally changes our nation. We’re taking on the leadership of the violent white nationalist movement – sending a clear message that violent hate has no place in our country.

With this lawsuit, Charlottesville is fighting back. The court has already rejected the defendants’ efforts to block this suit, which is officially headed to trial.

IFA’s suit — Sines v. Kessler — is the only current legal effort to take on the vast leadership of the violent white nationalist movement. It sends a message to every hate group in the country: Americans will not give in to violence and hate. We will defend the dignity and equality of all people. And we will ensure this never happens again.
