Dear friends,

In the past two years, ISIS has grown and spread like a cancer. ISIS is hijacking social media and other online tools to radicalize, recruit, spread propaganda, and plan attacks.

From California, to New York and from Texas to Minnesota, American youth are being radicalized by ISIS's relentless online messages. We've already seen a number of deadly attacks on U.S. soil in places like San Bernardino, CA and Orlando, FL.

ISIS is a serious, dangerous threat and we urgently need your help to fight back.

The Counter Extremism Project works to disrupt ISIS's use of the Internet as a tool to recruit and plan violent attacks. We help expose the financial and material support that ISIS depends on, and we have built the most comprehensive publicly available database of extremist leaders and groups as part of our effort to combat extremism. But we can't continue these efforts without the generous support of people like you.

Extremism is an urgent challenge, and one that we must ALL take part in solving. No one country, agency, or organization can beat ISIS on its own. Will you help us fight back against ISIS by donating $15, $35, or even $50 to the Counter Extremism Project to support our efforts and programs?

Together, we can defeat ISIS and other extremist groups that are threatening peace and security in America and across the globe.

Warm Regards,

Frances Townsend
President, Counter Extremism Project

Extremists: Their Words. Their Actions.

In Their Own Words:

We reiterate once again that the brigades will directly target US bases across the region in case the US enemy commits a folly and decides to strike our resistance fighters and their camps [in Iraq].
