The Internet has digitally connected our world in ways that have dramatically advanced the human condition. But these global connections are also vectors of societal ills, including anti-Semitism, the ancient hatred of Jews. The U.S. Department of State, with the goal of developing a unified response to this burgeoning menace, will bring together leaders of government, religious and civil society, social media platforms, and academia to devise effective counterstrategies that combat anti-Semitism while upholding America’s longstanding commitment to free speech.
