A Global Response to Combating Online Antisemitism
In September, members of the national legislatures of the United States, Australia, Canada, Israel, and the United Kingdom came together across party lines to launch the Inter-Parliamentary Task Force to Combat Online Antisemitism. The Task Force intends to raise awareness about antisemitism online and establish consistent and transparent messaging and policy from legislatures around the world in order to hold social media platforms accountable. Join Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) and Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), founding members of this newly-created task force, for a bipartisan discussion on the importance of combating online antisemitism on a global scale.
