ADL Community Briefing on Homegrown Extremists

The ADL Boulder Steering Committee is hosting a community briefing on March 5th focusing on Homegrown Extremists.  Our guest is Oren Segal, the Director of the Anti-Defamation League‘s Center on Extremism and the Director of ADL’s Research Center.

Mr. Segal is an expert in the radicalization process and criminal activity 
associated with homegrown extremists motivated by radical 
interpretations of Islam, as well as the role of the Internet in the 
radicalization process. He edits Terrorism Update, ADL’s Web site and 
newsletter dedicated to breaking news and in-depth features on domestic 
and international terrorism of the right and the left.  Mr. Segal has been with the League for 13 years. 

Much of his time with ADL has been devoted to evaluating the activity 
and tactics of extremist groups and movements, training law enforcement 
officers and publishing reports and articles on a wide range of 
extremist topics. As part of his work, Mr. Segal also examines the 
domestic anti-Israel movement, monitoring and analyzing emerging trends 
and campaigns, including activity on college campuses. National and international media outlets, 
including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street 
Journal, BBC, CNN and FOX News, have interviewed 

Mr. Segal.  A graduate of Wheaton College in 
Massachusetts, Mr. Segal, a native New Yorker, has previously worked for 
The New York Times and for the Jewish Community Federation in San 
Francisco.
