Linda Woolf was quoted in USA Today and also was interviewed on KGO Radio in San Francisco about human rights and combatting the spread of hate in the wake of events in Charlottesville.

See her comments at the end of the USA Today story, about web services companies revoking their services for white nationalist hate groups.

The KGO interview, a six-minute discussion on the popular San Francisco-area program, stemmed from her article in Psychology Today about human rights in the current environment under the Trump administration. She discussed not only the behavior of hate groups, but also the response to them.

Woolf is professor of psychology and international human rights in the College of Arts & Sciences.
