As a society we continue to grapple with how to combat hate speech and its dangerous consequences. Eric Ward writes that “antisemitism forms the theoretical core of white nationalism.” These white nationalists use online platforms to exploit fear and spread their virulent messages of hate, often in coded ways.
Recognizing online antisemitism is critical in effectively responding to it, which requires an understanding of the tropes and conspiracy theories that fuel antisemitism. Providing students with the tools to critically analyze antisemitic messaging online will help them navigate virtual spaces where they will almost certainly encounter antisemitism as well as other forms of hatred.
Join us for a day of learning grounded in proactively combating antisemitism and other forms of hatred in your school community. The program will offer transformative classroom content and instructional strategies from the Anti-Defamation League. We will also be joined by a former extremist who is currently working to combat hate in our time. This event is hosted in partnership with the South Carolina Council on the Holocaust.
