The Community Awareness Briefing (CAB) presentation is designed to help participants develop an understanding of violent extremist recruitment tactics and explore ways to prevent such threats at the local level. The goal is to raise awareness of how violent extremist movements recruit individuals to commit violent or illegal acts, negatively impacting these individuals, their families, and their communities. The goal is accomplished by using a series of case studies covering the spectrum of violent extremist groups to illustrate the radicalization and recruitment process, but more importantly to identify vulnerabilities and points of intervention. This helps audience members begin to think about possible actions that could create “off ramps” in a person’s pathway to radicalization before the line of criminal activity is crossed.
