Rhode Island had 142 reported incidents of white supremacist propaganda last year, marking a 74% increase over 2021 and reflecting an all-time high nationwide, the Anti-Defamation League said in its annual assessment. Nationally, the ADL recorded 6,751 incidents up 38% from 2021. Five states, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire, which comprise the ADL New England region, had an "astounding" 96% increase in recorded propaganda activity from 2021 with each state noting an increase," the ADL said.
