Once upon a time, in a small German town called Wunsiedel, EXIT-Germany in collaboration with locals found a unique and humorous way to deal with neo-Nazis rallying in their streets annually. They made them march against their own cause.
For every meter the neo-Nazis marched, they raised money towards programs fighting Nazis. This was deemed Germany’s most involuntary walkathon.
For every hateful display of e.g. xenophobia, homophobia or racism someone makes, they will involuntarily donate to our partners by unlocking funds we raised.
Right-wing rallies are popping up in streets across the US. We’ll turn these rallies into involuntary walkathons and unlock $1 per attendee from previously raised funds to support our partner organizations.Contact us for support
In the wake of the tragic events in Charlottesville, neo-Nazi groups have been energized holding rallies across the United States. After plans were announced to hold a rally on Crissy Field in San Francisco on August 26, 2017 anticipating 300 attendees, inspired by the Wunsiedel idea, a group of people started a fundraiser called Adopt-A-Nazi (not really).
They trolled them by taking a page out of the playbook of Wunsiedel #RechtsgegenRechts and #HassHilft.
