The Simon Wiesenthal Center and The Breman Museum Present

a ZOOM Webinar on Digital anti-Semitism and Hate During the COVID-19 Pandemic

After the anti-Semitic attacks in the United States from December 2019, the urgency of a response has taken a backseat to the new reality of the Coronavirus pandemic. In the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak, however, anti-Semitic hate has not diminished. In fact, a diverse selection of anti-Semites worldwide are using the pandemic to retool their prejudices using a new and innovative war chest full of despicable digital means.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center has joined with The Breman Museum in presenting Digital anti-Semitism and Hate During the COVID-19 Pandemic, a live ZOOM webinar on May 14th , noon eastern time. Visit to register.

The featured speaker is Rick Eaton, a Senior Researcher with the Simon Wiesenthal Center and Co-Director of the Center's Digital Terrorism and Hate Project. In his over 34 years with SWC, Rick has become a leading expert on both Domestic and International extremist groups and online Hate and Terrorism. Over the years Rick has shared his knowledge by conducting training sessions with the FBI, ATF, the U.S. Attorney's office, the U.S Military and dozens of local law-enforcement agencies and private groups.

Rick is a Certified Instructor with California P.O.S.T. (Peace Officer Standards and Training) and teaches in both their Terrorism for Investigators and Hate Crimes for Investigators courses. He has been an advisor on 11 Terrorism related "Tele-Courses" produced by P.O.S.T. and sponsored by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. In 1995 Rick testified before the U.S. House Judiciary Sub-Committee on Crime regarding the "Nature and Threat of violent Anti-government Groups in America" and has conducted many other briefings on Capitol Hill. In an undercover role, he has met leading white supremacists, militia figures and domestic and international terrorists. In conjunction with SWC’s Associate Dean Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Rick has produced all 22 volumes of the Center's interactive Digital Terrorism and Hate Report.
