Center on Technology and Society/Regional Support
Across the U.S., incidents of anti-Semitism and other forms of hate continue to be on the rise. In November 2019, the F.B.I. announced that personal attacks motivated by bias or prejudice reached a 16-year high in 2018, with 60% of attacks targeted against Jews and Jewish institutions. In response, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which has been tracking and combating anti-Semitism and protecting American civil liberties since 1913, is expanding its work in communities, on the Hill, and online. This renewal grant will provide targeted support for the Center on Technology and Society, the ADL’s Silicon Valley-based initiative that educates and works alongside executives and engineers from tech companies working to offline hate. A portion of the grant will also support the ADL’s core programming in the Los Angeles region.
