“I have spent a lot of years just hiding from it.”

40-year-old Julie Sanders is a mother of three from Portland, Oregon.

But at 16, she belonged to a white supremacist group – and one night in 1988, found herself at the scene of a murder.

She’s kept this a secret from most of her friends and family.

In fact, before sitting down with a friend at StoryCorps, Julie had rarely talked about her past at all.
