As of January 2023, nine members of the Oath Keepers have been convicted of seditious conspiracy for their roles in the January 6 United States Capitol attack. The Oath Keepers is an American far-right anti-government militia group formed in 2009 by founder Elmer Stewart Rhodes.
This Friday, the Democratic Club has invited Sam Jackson to speak with us. Sam is the author of the book OATH KEEPERS: Patriotism and the Edge of Violence in a Right-Wing Antigovernment Group. He recently discussed his research at the Washington State University Foley Institute.
Join us Friday at noon online to learn about his research into the Oath Keepers and other extremist groups and what motivates them.
