Students will have the opportunity to consider and engage in conversation about extremist groups. Radicalization and violent extremism threats are growing across Colorado. Our hope is to help students have the tools to recognize groups who radicalize, how they can identify the threat, and learn about ways to support peers to open social concerns.
