The event states that it will focus on: “In 2017, white supremacists meticulously planned and carried out a violent attack on Charlottesville that resulted in dozens of injuries and the death of Heather Heyer. Nearly four years later, far-right extremists are even more emboldened by years of disinformation, conspiracies, and hate — made clear by the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol and record-level hate crimes and domestic terror. Integrity First for America is fighting back with its landmark Charlottesville lawsuit.”
