Social Pattern Library
Our resource for social platform interaction designers and developers provides design prototypes for features to mitigate and prevent hate and to improve abuse reporting and support for targets.
In 2018, ADL Center for Technology and Society, with the support of the Robert Belfer Family, launched the Belfer Fellows program. The Belfer Fellowship program advances ADL’s work by promoting awareness around online hate and digital citizenship, as well as implementing these projects for the wider social good.
What We Do
ADL Center for Technology & Society brings together policy experts, developers and researchers to combat hate in the digital world. We recommend policy and product interventions to elected officials and technology companies to mitigate online hate and harassment. We drive advocacy efforts, hold online platforms accountable and educate their staff on current threats and challenges. We produce applied research by analysts and a network of fellows, generating new insights into the nature and impact of hate and harassment on marginalized communities. We create technical tools and products that provide much-needed data measurement and analysis to track identity-based online hate and harassment. We empower targets of harassment by responding to online incidents of hate and work with platforms to create safer online spaces for all.
