We are working with internet service providers to ensure that antisemitic propaganda which is deemed illegal is removed within 24 hours. In addition, internet service providers are making a concerted effort to ensure that antisemitic propaganda does not appear at the top of search results.

We are also supporting the Anne Frank Trust’s Switch off Prejudice programme, which empowers young people with the knowledge, skills and confidence, to challenge all forms of prejudice and discrimination and increase their digital resilience. The project is currently in its second year and has already achieved a significant impact on its participants.
