On August 24, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton dedicated a major campaign speech to the “emerging” ideology known as the Alt Right.

An unprecedented amount of attention was given to this young movement, to which millions of Americans are are being exposed for the first time. (And unfortunately, Clinton got quite a bit wrong. . .)

So what is the Alt Right?

What is this movement, which has been called “dangerous,” “radical,” and “fearsomely intelligent” by its observers?

How has the Alt Right—born on the Internet in the past eight years—attracted so many passionate fans and critics and become a force in American politics in such a short period of time?

Who makes up the Alt Right, and what are its central ideas?

On Friday, September 9, The National Policy Institute will host a conference—free and open to the public and press—in which Alt-Right leaders discuss their movement.

Participants include

  • Peter Brimelow, Editor of, author of Alien-Nation and longtime immigration analyst and activist;
  • Richard Spencer, Editor of and President of The National Policy Institute, who coined the term “Alt Right”;
  • Jared Taylor, Editor of American Renaissance, a webzine dedicated to race and its impact on society.

Brimelow, Spencer, and Taylor will address particular aspects of the Alt Right and take questions from the public and media.

Admission is free. Registration is recommended, as the room’s capacity will likely be reached, and only registrants will be guaranteed seating.
