Safe@Home | A Conversation with Michael Masters

Dec 1, 2023
12:00pm to 12:30pm ET


International terrorism and domestic violent extremism are once again at the forefront of U.S. national security concerns. As a result of the October 7 Hamas attack on Israel, antisemitism has been increasing at an exponential rate, both in the U.S. and around the world. On Friday, December 1, CNAS hosted a virtual event with Michael Masters, National Director and CEO of the Secure Community Network, for a conversation on antisemitism in the U.S., the work of the Secure Community Network, and the way forward to combat antisemitism and the accompanying outbreak in violence and aggression. Robert M. Gates Senior Fellow Carrie Cordero hosted the discussion.

The CNAS Safe@Home speaker series, relaunching in December 2023, focuses on challenges to homeland security such as international and domestic terrorism, political violence against government officials, mass shootings and gun violence, pandemic preparedness and response, climate related emergency management, cybersecurity and response, and related issues. Under the CNAS Securing U.S. Democracy Initiative, this series aims to inform policymakers, the media, and the public to ensure that domestic security and public safety are adequately represented in national security conversations and problem-solving efforts.
