FIGHTING ONLINE ANTISEMITISM

About Us

Fighting Online Antisemitism (FOA) is a nonprofit organization which has taken on the challenge of monitoring and removing antisemitic content found on the internet, in several languages across six social media platforms.

Since its foundation, volunteers have succeeded in reporting hundreds of examples of antisemitic conspiracy theories and misleading content, leading to the deletion of significant amounts of material from the world’s leading social media platforms.

Our Vision

We believe that removing antisemitic content from the internet will reduce the number of antisemitic incidents that target Jewish communities in the public sphere. We believe that the fight against antisemitism is first and foremost a struggle for human rights, minority rights, liberalism, pluralism, equality and the acceptance of others. Ours is a shared struggle for a better world, both for the Jewish people and for humanity.

Our Goals

1
Monitoring antisemitism, delegitimisation, racism and other manifestations of hate online in accordance with the Working Definition of Antisemitism.
2
Raising awareness of the phenomenon of cyber hate and promoting discourse on human rights, minority rights, pluralism and tolerance, especially among teenagers and young adults.
3
Establishing and developing a database of online antisemitism and promoting international, systematic, simultaneous and effective activities to remove antisemitic content.
4
Advocating collaboration between government agencies, social and civic organizations and social media platforms to promote positive change in hate content publication standards.
