Thursday, Novenber 16, 2023

Hate groups in the US have grown significantly over the last few years. In fact, 72 hate and anti-government groups were tracked in Texas in 2022. Did you know there are hate groups thriving in our own community?


Find out more about the rise of hate groups and extremists' organizations operating in Houston and across the country from Mark Toubin and John Cobarruvias at the November BAAD Women meeting. 

Mark Toubin joined ADL as its Southwest Regional Director in 2019 following a career in law, politics and non-profit. A former litigator, Mark joined the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) as its Southwest Regional Director in 1999. Between AIPAC and ADL,he operated a consulting practice focused on strategic communication, government affairs, non-profit, and politics. Mark’s media appearances include ABC13, Click2Houston, KHOU, Fox26, Houston Chronicle, Houston Public Media, NPR, and CNN. 

John Cobarruvias has been a political blogger for many years, writing on local, state, and national political topics. As a former consumer activist, he also writes on consumer issues such as the high cost of home insurance and the failure of electricity deregulation. But he also focuses on money in politics researching the funding of candidates and Political Action Committees as well as their spending habits. John’s research in this area resulted in changes to the Texas Ethics Commission to prevent hiding campaign spending behind credit cards.
