Our mission is to honor the global victims of hate by breaking down silos, exchanging ideas, and engaging in prioritized actions against hate.
How it Started
The Eradicate Hate Global Summit was born out of the October 2018 massacre at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life Synagogue. It was an attack motivated by anti-Semitic and anti-immigrant hatred that ultimately led to the tragic shooting deaths of 11 people. Sadly, it became the deadliest anti-Semitic event in U.S. history.
The Summit’s organizers refused to merely be defined as victims of hate. Instead, they resolved to use the Tree of Life attack as motivation to launch the most significant anti-hate rule of law initiative in the world. It brings together multi-disciplinary global experts and leaders who are committed to the global eradication of all forms of hate speech and violent extremism.
A distinguishing feature of the Summit is that it goes beyond dialogue in the collective pursuit of solutions by uniting experts and leaders from around the globe.
By bringing together the best and the brightest and providing an ongoing Working Group structure, we hope to develop workable solutions. The Summit incentivizes experts to work collaboratively across disciplines, across institutions, and across borders between each annual gathering, to deliver actual, lasting, and measurable change.
At each annual Summit, the Working Groups will present the results of their year-long work and will plot the specific ongoing work for the year to come.
Our agenda spotlights the magnitude of our vision and the fact that we continue to amass an extraordinary group of international experts to address these critical issues. We believe their collective work reflects a shared conviction that makes the Summit unique. Our hope is that each year it will continue to bring effective change to the way we combat hate-fueled extremism. We invite you to join us and be part of the next chapter.
