Breakout Session #1
Mapping Project, ESG and Beyond: New Tactics in Antisemitism and How to Respond
11:10 AM - 12:05 PM ET
Antisemitism is manifesting itself in new ways and places and we must learn from these incidents and work with our partners to combat it. In Boston, an anonymous group has posted a map providing detailed information about the specific physical locations of Jewish organizations (including ADL, Jewish schools, and Jewish philanthropists and community leaders). Mapping their connections to government, corporations and universities, they call for disrupting those relationships. We are also seeing new and growing tactics to push companies to boycott Israel, such as more protests at stores as well as trying to hijack the environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing movement to target Israel. This panel will explore these and other tactics antisemites are now taking and how to respond.
