Exit Specialist, Life After Hate
Chuck was actively involved with white supremacist groups for over 15 years beginning in the mid-1980s and sympathetic to their beliefs for 20-plus years. After learning that a girlfriend was half Jewish, he began to question those beliefs, which was the beginning of a long disengagement and deradicalization process.
In 2011 Chuck was introduced to Life After Hate, and with their support began speaking publicly against his former beliefs. Today he works as an Exit Specialist with Life After Hate, providing Peer Mentoring services to people exiting hate groups, part of an interdisciplinary model of tertiary intervention for Violent Far Right Extremism.
