Ancient Hatred, Modern Medium

1:00PM - 2:00PM  

The first-ever U.S. Government-Sponsored Event to focus on the Troubling Rise of Online Antisemitism

Hosted by Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo

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.

Kindly RSVP to SEAS-RSVP@state.gov. The conference can be found at www.state.gov/anti-semitism-conference
