Navigating Online Hate & Antisemitism Webinar

11 August @ 5:30 pm : 7:00 pm UTC+2

Free

Join us on Wednesday, 11 August at 17:30, as we discuss how to navigate online hate, cyberbullying and antisemitism, with guest speakers Emma Sadleir (CEO of the Digital Law Company), Daniel Kelley (Associate Director of the Centre for Technology and Society at ADL), Daniel Sugarman (Public Affairs Officer of the Board of Deputies of British Jews) and Wendy Kahn (National Director of the South African Jewish Board of Deputies).

Social media is the most powerful communication tool, yet it has polarised society so much so that online hate, cyberbullying and antisemitism have become rampant. How should we respond to this, and does the law truly protect us?

Emma will outline hate speech and cyberbullying from a South African law perspective, and our guest speakers from the SAJBD, ADL and British Board will share their unique experiences with regard to hate speech, focusing on the recent rise in antisemitic rhetoric in their countries.

Book your spot here, or tune in to our Facebook page on the night where we will be livestreaming the event.
