Individuals who belong to extremist organizations or harbor extremist views employ a variety of strategies to influence mainstream society, one of which is running for public office. Once elected, these candidates are able to affect laws and public policy from the inside as a part of the political system. Exposing Extremism in Elections — a project of the SPLC Action Fund — is an attempt to reveal this strategy and arm voters with the information they need to protect our democracy from extremist influences.
