Digital Extremism and Anti-Semitism at Home and Abroad: The Data, The Challenge, and Strategies for Intervention

Wednesday, February 15, 9-10:30am

When Elon Musk took over Twitter, alarm bells started ringing about the return of extremists to the platform, and the risks posed by resurgent digital hate. Join researchers, scholars, and prevention experts to learn the state of affairs today, in the US, around the world, and right here in Orange County. Panelists will present on their own research and activities to combat extremism and anti-Semitism, and share what can be done to intervene in and prevent hate, both online and offline.

Hosted and moderated by Dean Bill Maurer, UCI, and Maureen Dadabhoy, Human Relations Advocate, OCHR
