Eradicate Hate:

Sara Aniano is a Disinformation Analyst at the Anti-Defamation League Center on Extremism. She joined ADL after earning her master’s degree in communication from Monmouth University. Sara regularly tracks false and misleading narratives across various groups and platforms to identify those which embolden extremists, target vulnerable individuals or threaten the democratic process. From fringe to mainstream media, she hopes to shed light on the strategies and repercussions of misinformation, disinformation and conspiracy theories, as well as hold accountable those who allow these harmful narratives to spread.

The effort to eradicate hate requires the active participation of every component of our society, to include governments, the private sector, communities of faith and indeed every aspect of civil society. There is no more urgent task in front of us. The organizers of the Eradicate Hate Global Summit are doing the United States and the world an enormous service by tackling hatred and extremism with a focus on honest dialogue and conversation, genuine learning and practical solutions. This will not happen overnight, but the Pittsburgh community’s leadership in this effort is genuinely inspiring and motivating.
