Center for Technology and Society

Launched in 2017, ADL’s Center for Technology and Society (CTS) leads the global fight against online hate and harassment. In a world riddled with antisemitism, bigotry, extremism and disinformation, CTS acts as a fierce advocate for making digital spaces safe, respectful and equitable for all people.

CTS plays a unique role in civil society by recommending policy and product interventions to elected officials and technology companies to mitigate online hate and harassment; driving advocacy efforts to hold platforms accountable and to educate their staff on current threats and challenges; producing data-driven applied research by analysts and a network of fellows, shedding new light on the nature and impact of hate and harassment on vulnerable and marginalized communities; bringing to market technical tools and products that provide much-needed data measurement and analysis to track identity-based online hate and harassment; and empowering targets of harassment by responding to online incidents and working with platforms to create safer online spaces for all.
