“White Nationalism in Kitsap County” is the topic for the next session of the Kitsap Aware Forum.

The forum will help people identify and understand white nationalist and white supremacist ideology and groups (including those in the region) so their harmful rhetoric and actions can be challenged.

Featured speakers include Chuck Tanner, advisory board member for the Institute for Research and Education on Human Rights, and Tracy Flood, a lawyer, advocate and president of the Bremerton Chapter of the NAACP.

The session will provide an introduction to white nationalism (what it is, its origins and activities) along with information on other forms of anti-democratic nationalism (so-called “patriot” and militia types, and anti-Indian groups).

The forum will then share details on groups active in Kitsap County and dialogue about what can be done to counter them.

The session is 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 9 at Olympic College in Bremerton. It will be hosted in the rotunda of Engineering Building 117. (For a camp, visit https://apps.olympic.edu/campusmap/.)

The Kitsap Aware Forum is sponsored by North Kitsap Indivisible, Resisterhood360, Indivisible Bainbridge Island, Kitsap Progressive Action Network, and West Sound for Social Justice.
