IFA’s monthly newsletter provides updates on our successful lawsuit against the neo-Nazis and extremist groups behind the Unite the Right violence, as well as news on the broader fight against violent white supremacy and challenges to our democracy. If you’re getting this email as a forward, you can sign up here. And if you’d like to support IFA’s ongoing work to bankrupt and dismantle the hate groups and leaders at the center of the white supremacist movement, you can donate here.
Today is V-E Day. There aren’t many commemorations these days in the US, but we at IFA tend to think defeating Nazis is something that should be celebrated – especially at a time when it can be so easy to feel despair creeping in. And this week, we’ve felt it. The Nazis predicted the Third Reich would last 1,000 years, but in May 1945 their fascist empire was brought down by a coalition that included hundreds of thousands of Jews, Black and Brown people, LGBTQ+ people, and others they’d sought to destroy. As we face off against modern-day Nazism, resurgent hate, and authoritarianism, today we’re reminded that -- together -- we can fight back, we can show up for one another’s rights and safety, and we can win. We will win. Happy V-E Day.
