About this Episode

Guests Alexander Reid Ross and Anna Duensing join Right Rising to discuss the local manifestations of the far-right. Along with host Augusta Dell'Omo, Alexander and Anna discuss the broad landscape of far-right activism at the local level in the United States and its influence on school boards, vaccination mandates, policing, and state legislatures. Together, Alexander, Anna, and Augusta dive into the history of local far-right organizing and reveal what it can tell us about current activism. What - we ask - can concerned observers can do to combat this influx of far-right activity in their local communities?
