Anti-Semitic attitudes and incidents are a reality around the globe. It’s time to take action.
What You Can Do:
- ADVOCATE against hate in the United States by signing a petition urging Congress to enact the Jabara-Heyer NO HATE Act and the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act. Contact your local Jewish community to consider supporting or initiating other legislative action in your country.
- LEARN how you can help stop the spread of hate online by reporting it directly to social media platforms using our Cyber Safety Action Guide.
- REPORT incidents of anti-Semitism to ADL , your local Jewish community, and/or local law enforcement.
- TALK to friends, family, colleagues and young people about the consequences of anti-Semitism, extremism and hate. Here are some Educational Resources to help answer common questions and here is our Books Matter collection which shares stories of bias, diversity and standing up to hate.
What Governments Around the World Can Do:
- PROVIDE robust political leadership to reassure targeted communities and to discredit, reject and marginalize anti-Semitism by speaking out against manifestations of anti-Semitism and other forms of scapegoating across the political spectrum.
- UTILIZE the IHRA (the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance) working definition of anti-Semitism along with other training and education resources for law enforcement, teachers, and community leaders. A broad, inclusive definition should include current manifestation of anti-Semitism, allow for protected political expression on Israel and Zionism, but draw the line before such expression turns into intentional, unlawful or discriminatory intimidation and harassment. Mandate public reporting on anti-Semitic incidents and all other forms of hate violence and discrimination.
- ENSURE that your government has specific senior officials tasked with combating anti-Semitism and all forms of hate. Mandate hate crime prevention and response training into law enforcement education.
- WORK closely with local Jewish communities to address issues of concern, including security matters and the freedom to practice their religion openly and without legal restrictions.
- PUSH for school curricula to include Holocaust education, address modern-day anti-Semitism, and include general anti-bias education.
