Life After Hate: Lessons from a former white supremacist

How it happens and how we build long-term solutions to counteract racism and violent extremism

When former white supremacist skinhead Christian Picciolini left the movement he helped build, he began the dramatic shift helping disengage other youth from white supremacist groups and violent extremism. The Montana Human Rights Network is hosting Christian for his "Life After Hate" Montana tour to share his story and offer ways to counter the movement his was part of promoting.

Chris Piccolini
Christian Picciolini is an Emmy Award-winning director and producer, an author, and a reformed extremist. His work is born of an ongoing need to atone for a grisly past and to contribute to the greater good. In 2010 he co-founded Life After Hate, dedicated to helping communities implement long-term solutions that counter racism and violent extremism. Christian recently authored, Romantic Violence: Memoirs of an American Skinhead. In 2016, Life After Hate launched ExitUSA, run by former extremists focused on helping people disengage from white supremacist ideologies. Last year he won an Emmy for ExitUSA's anti-hate PSA, "There is life after hate."
