A new project by Hillel International, the Anti-Defamation League, and the Secure Community Network has made it easier for Jewish students across US campuses to report instances of Antisemitism.
ReportCampusHate.org is a new website where Jewish students can report antisemitism on college campuses and “receive immediate support” from security professionals and law enforcement. The site is now live, and will help “ensure proper tracking of antisemitic trends.”
The incidents logged via the website will be reviewed by a trained security professional, who will liaise with law enforcement and the campus Hillel to file them with the university and receive an appropriate response. According to Hillel, data acquired shows an increase of antisemitic incidents on college campuses, with 244 tracked during the 2020-2021 academic year, compared to 181 during the year prior.
Adam Lehman, President, and CEO of Hillel International said the incidents reported on the website will help college administrators “improve the campus climate” for Jewish students. “It is essential that Jewish college students and their peers have access to tools and resources to address antisemitism and hate on campus so they can live and study in safe and welcoming environments,” he said Wednesday. “ReportCampusHate.org will empower students to report antisemitic incidents knowing they will get the support they need and the response they deserve.”
