When Elon Musk took over Twitter, alarm bells started ringing about the return of extremists to the platform, and the risks posed by resurgent digital hate. Join researchers, scholars, and prevention experts to learn the state of affairs today, in the US, around the world, and right here in Orange County. Panelists will present on their own research and activities to combat extremism and anti-Semitism, and share what can be done to intervene in and prevent hate, both online and offline.
