About Our Campaign

According to the Federal Bureau of Investigations, violent domestic extremism is encouraging, condoning, justifying or supporting the commission of a violent act to achieve political, ideological, religious, social or economic goals.

It is legal in the United States to have hateful or extremist beliefs as long crimes or violent acts are not committed based on those beliefs. The right to assemble as a group is also protected by the United States Constitution.

The purpose of Stop Homegrown Hate is to educate the public about the existence and danger of violent domestic groups and not to offer opinions about the beliefs of these groups or individuals.
