Founding Director

Jeff Schoep is the Founder of  Beyond Barriers, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to a new approach of countering and preventing extremism.  From 1994 until early 2019, Jeff Schoep was the leader of the largest neo-Nazi organization in the United States, the National Socialist Movement (NSM). In March 2019 he became the highest profile former white nationalist to ever walk away from far-right extremism in the USA. Since then, Jeff has been an outspoken advocate against the ideology that he had been part of for 27 years, making him uniquely qualified to understand extremism and extremist ideologies. Jeff now works as an International Extremism Consultant helping to educate communities and policy makers on the threat of white supremacy and how to effectively counter and prevent violent extremism. In addition to public speaking, he also provides consulting services and leadership skills trainings.
