The app will also share best practices and successes in defeating campus-based anti-Israel agendas and alert Jewish students of relevant breaking news impacting campuses.

"Anti-Semitic rhetoric on campuses has to stop. [We are] thrilled to be partners with the SWC, who recognized the power of the interent 20 years ago...and now 20,000 members have a place to report anti-Semitic hate speech which has no place on campus," said Andy Borans, Executive Director AEPi who, along with Larry Leider, International President, (both pictured center) joined with SWC officials and AEPi members at the launch of CombatHateU at the MOTNY.

is the third in a series of special anti-hate apps developed by the Wiesenthal Center's Digital Terrorism and Hate Project that has been a trailblazer in exposing, monitoring and combating the abuse of online technologies by extremists at home and abroad. The Center's annual Digital Terrorism and Hate reports have been highlighted by US Congress and is an invaluable resource for law enforcement, intelligence, and community activists globally.
