Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2007
    This description of Judy Korn's work was prepared when Judy Korn was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2007.
    Working with young and violent right-wing extremists, Judy Korn recognized that hate crimes by this group and other extremists are increasing as well as rates of recidivism, but that the root causes for those ethnocentrically motivated violent acts remains unaddressed. She tackles this problem through a targeted prison prevention program that dismantles ideological attitudes and behavior, and stabilizes the youngsters to abstain from ideological hate crimes after their release.
