The Politics of Hate.

August 8, 2019

Christian Picciolini was an architect of the white-supremacist skinhead movement in America during the 1980s and 90s. He had a couple of life changing moments, left the movement and earned a degree in international relations from DePaul University and went on to launch Goldmill Group, a global digital media and counter-extremism consulting firm. In 2016, he won an Emmy Award for his role in producing an anti-hate advertising campaign aimed at helping people disengage from extremist groups. His life since leaving the white-supremacist movement over two decades ago has been dedicated to helping others counter racism and violent extremism by co-founding the organization Life After Hate. Picciolini now leads the Free Radicals Project (, the world's first global disengagement platform.  

While everyone on television talks about the politics of hate from the outside in, Christian addresses this infection of the human spirit from the inside out.
