Results Information

Program Name: StandWithUs Social Media Program
Problem

There is a huge problem with getting correct information on social media today, especially about heated issues. Unfortunately, there is also a massive problem with antisemitism on social media, especially in Arabic. This misinformation and incitement has fueled ethnicity based terrorism in Israeli and the Palestinian territories.

Strategy

We utilize social media in English and Arabic on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to educate the public about the dangers of antisemitism, to call for unity in times of rampant incitement on social media, and to hold those accountable to encourage violence. We do this through original videos and graphics as well as our "Ambassador Program" which brings together social media activists who search for and report hate speech in all languages. Last year they took action on 11,700 posts.

IF:THEN

IF Palestinians and Israelis see that coexistence is possible on the same feeds in which they see calls to violence...

THEN They will think twice about the violent narratives they're taught and understand there is a better way.

IF The Arabic world sees push back on antisemitic comments and hate speech (or videos)....

THEN They will learn that antisemitism is not an acceptable hatred, just like any other hatred and we are less likely to repeat the mistakes of the past like what occurred in the Holocaust.

IF We have more people reporting antisemitic or violent social media content...

THEN Social media giants like Google and Facebook will remove more hate content.
