New York, NY, September 21, 2016 — On September 22nd, 2016, Dov Baron and Tony McAleer, a former white supremacist leader, will be speaking together at an event in New York sponsored by the U.S. Department of State. The topic of discussion is ​deradicalizing violent extremists.

Tony McAleer ​’s life has been completely transformed and he is now the executive director of ​Life After Hate ​, a non­profit group that helps people leave racist and extremist organizations. ​He credits Dov Baron for his deradicalization.

Together, at this NYC event, they will expand on this topic by educating extremists and former extremists on “finding their own truth,” rather than simply relying on truths they were indoctrinated with.

Why are they addressing violent extremist groups on our own soil?

Because the hard truth is this: ​most violent extremism is home­grown.

It’s time we recognize this fact and start analyzing the psychological motives of the individuals within these groups rather than ​ ​just the acts they perform. Gaining understanding of the human dynamics of both “leaders” in extremist groups and the individuals who have left the groups can change everything in regards to a safer society.

Dov Baron will also be presenting a transformational process that teaches former extremists to return to their true identity and authentic beliefs. Individuals come out of this program with the deep level of self-­knowledge, skills, and tools needed to sincerely connect with others like themselves. This enables them to partner with community leaders, law enforcement, and the community at large. By giving them a way to see themselves and others in a new light, the rest of society gains a deeper understanding of why and how violent extremist groups exist. This life-­changing process can, in turn, decrease the drivers of radicalization in communities targeted for recruitment and radicalization by violent extremists.

The result?

A new, healthy, and compassionate tapestry of society.
