A report issued yesterday by the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism documented 346 instances in which propaganda with a white supremacist agenda have been distributed on U.S. campuses over the past 12 months.

Schools in California and Texas were the most frequent targets.

“White supremacists continue to see young people as prime targets for recruitment, perhaps now more than ever,” said Oren Segal, director of league’s Center on Extremism, told CNN.

Another factor in the increase were speeches given on campuses by self-identified white supremacists like Richard Spencer, who spoke at Texas A&M, the University of Florida and Auburn. Another speakers have been prevented from speaking at campuses and protests have raged around many appearances.

Identity Evropa was identified as a group that was responsible almost 50% of the 346 instances of flyers or propaganda appearing on campuses. The group describes itself as a white supremacist group focused on preserving “white American culture” and promoting white European identity, according to the data from the Anti-Defamation League.
