Combating Online Hate in Schools: What to Know. What to Do.

This seminar is for all caring adults in school communities- support staff, administrators, school librarians, SROs and educators- to examine the issues of digital citizenship in an age of online hate. Led by SWC Research Department, Associate Director, Emily Thompson, participants will be oriented to the state of online hate through the Center'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 anti-Semitic content has been spread online recently. Participants will receive the MOT’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.

You will receive:

  • The SWC's digital Lexicon of Hate
  • The SWC"s latest Digital Hate and Terrorism report 
  • Combat Hate Student Workshop Lesson Plan and Action Plan Card
