This program examines the issues of digital citizenship in an age of online hate. Participants will be oriented to the state of online hate through the Centre’s searchable database and discuss some of the challenges young people face on popular digital platforms. Participants will learn about some of the common symbols and codes used by extremists online, and look at the ways in which anti-Asian, anti-Black and antisemitic content has been spread online recently. Participants will receive resources including the Museum of Tolerance’s Combat Hate “Action Card” as a tool for schools and families to empower all media users to speak up and be part of the solution.
This webinar is presented in partnership with the Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Centre of Holocaust Studies.
