Lauren is a former extremist who denounced hatred and has since partaken in initiatives to facilitate the disengagement of members of hate groups, including working with Life After Hate in the United States. At age 17, she joined the white power movement after the death of her father. She spent several years in the movement before making the conscious decisions to leave due to the murder of another member, sobriety and gaining critical thinking skills. Lauren and her mother, Jeannette Manning, recently co-authored the book Walking Away from Hate.
Provincial Hate Study
Hate and hate-motivated incidents in our province continue to be a problem that needs addressing.
The Alberta Government commissioned us to write a report about hate in the province, and how to address it. This study will help inform provincial policy addressing hate.
We’re asking Albertans to fill out this survey to help us understsnd and address the problem of hate in our province.
