Since publishing its first report on digital hate in 1985, the ADL has been an international leader in tracking, exposing, and responding to hate on the Internet, ADL closely monitors hate sites and the activities and beliefs promoted by extremists and terrorists. The League has prepared an extensive toolkit for addressing cyberhate and educational resources for parents. ADL convenes a working group on cyberhate bringing together experts, academics, NGOs, and Internet industry leaders to evaluate current practices and to develop new strategies for responding. As a result of that work, in September 2014 ADL released Best Practices for Challenging Cyberhate, which establishes guideposts for the industry and Internet community to help users understand what they can do when they encounter hate speech online.
ADL’s new Cyber-Safety Action Guide is a unique resource allowing Internet users to register concerns without having to face the daunting task of navigating a website’s maze of links. This innovative online asset along with ADL’s other cyber safety resources (PDF) are part of ADL’s arsenal for helping to fight hate and incivility online.
