Safe Communities Institute Hosts Homegrown Violent Extremism Digital Summit

Homegrown Violent Extremism is on the rise in the United States, posing a real and immediate threat.

The USC Safe Communities Institute, housed within the USC Price School of Public Policy, convened an interdisciplinary collection of counter-terrorism experts, academics, former extremists, public health practitioners, researchers and victims on Nov. 8 to discuss preventing attacks and enhancing public safety at the USC Homegrown Violent Extremism (HVE) Digital Summit.

Since HVE concerns every American, the Safe Communities Institute (SCI) partnered with the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism to stream the summit online and reach a wider audience, resulting in more than 1,500 virtual attendees. The entire video can be viewed on the SCI website ( or here.
