FIGHTING ONLINE ANTISEMITISM

Who we are

Fighting Online Antisemitism (FOA) is an Israeli-based NGO dedicated to combating antisemitism through volunteer training, reporting antisemitic content on social media, and raising awareness of the phenomena of cyberhate.

 

Established in 2020, FOA has trained over 3000 international volunteers who regularly monitor antisemitic content in multiple languages and across ten leading social media networks.

Goals

1
Monitoring manifestations of antisemitism and hatred in the online space in accordance with the International Alliance for the Preservation of the Holocaust's working definition of 'antisemitism' (IHRA).
2
Raising awareness of the phenomenon of cyberhate and promoting pluralistic discourses (especially among youngers) through educational workshops.
3
Maintaining a database of manifestations of online antisemitism. Such data is utilized in periodical reports examining contemporary trends pertaining to online antisemitism on social media and removal rates of antisemitic content across various platforms.
4
Promoting cooperation between Governmental organizations, national and international Non-Governmental Organizations, civic society, and social media platforms. Such cooperation is necessary to combat cyberhate in general, and antisemitism in particular.
