Eradicate Hate:
2022, 2023

Jillian Hunchak (she/they) works as a research analyst at the Canada Centre for Community Engagement and Prevention of Violence (Canada Centre). She specializes in gender-based violence, including the Involuntary Celibate (Incel) movement and violence against 2SLGBTQI+ persons and communities, in addition to the far-right, conspiracy theories, and mis/dis/malinformation.

Jillian received her MA in Terrorism, Security, and Society from King’s College London in 2018, and integrates her background in Anthropology to center cultural contexts, intersectionalities, and social dynamics in her research. Prior to joining the Canada Centre, she is fortunate to have worked with think-tanks including Moonshot, Insight Threat Intelligence, and the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation (ICSR), conducting open-source research on a wide variety of extremist movements. She is currently based in Southern Alberta and is passionate about integrating and adapting P/CVE practices to better serve rural and remote communities.

The effort to eradicate hate requires the active participation of every component of our society, to include governments, the private sector, communities of faith and indeed every aspect of civil society. There is no more urgent task in front of us. The organizers of the Eradicate Hate Global Summit are doing the United States and the world an enormous service by tackling hatred and extremism with a focus on honest dialogue and conversation, genuine learning and practical solutions. This will not happen overnight, but the Pittsburgh community’s leadership in this effort is genuinely inspiring and motivating.
