Guests Alexander Reid Ross and Anna Duensing join Right Rising to discuss the local manifestations of the far-right. While events like January 6 occurred on the national level, Alexander and Anna reveal the vast landscape of far-right activism that influences local politics, including school boards, policing, and state legislatures. Alexander and Anna break down the history of this far-right activism in places like Portland, New York City, and Charlotte and help us answer why studying local activism is so important.
