We are facing a clear and present danger. The threat is ‘homegrown’ and being committed by extremists who are inspired by a diverse collection of ideological motivations, based on race, religion and issue-orientation. Dr. Southers, director of the Sol  Price School of Public  Policy’s  Homegrown Violent Extremism Studies Program, examines the complexity of this landscape, offering his perception, some predictions, and interdisciplinary community-based initiatives America should consider going forward.
