Sabine von Mering will delve into the revolutionary impact of social media on the spread of antisemitism, white supremacy, and other forms of hate, including among youth. The discussion will also offer practical strategies for individuals, groups, and institutions to combat these issues. This event is open to everyone and free of charge. We extend a special invitation to parents, urging them to attend and gain valuable insights into addressing these challenges.
