Join Temple Israel of Great Neck, Temple Beth-El, and ADL to hear from Daniel Kelley, ADL Associate Director for Center for Technology and Society, for a one-hour exploration on how antisemitism comes through platforms like Twitch, TikTok, SnapChat, Instagram and more.

Daniel Kelley (he/him/his) is the Associate Director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL)’s Center for Technology and Society (CTS). CTS works through research and advocacy to fight for justice and fair treatment for all in digital social spaces from social media to online games and beyond. Daniel helped lead the #StopHateforProfit campaign for ADL in 2020, which raised the voices over
1,000 leading companies and countless celebrities against Facebook’s inaction regarding hate on its platform, and led to meaningful change including Facebook’s agreeing to an external audit by the ad industry and hiring an internal VP of civil rights. Daniel leads the center’s work to fight hate and harassment in the games. In 2019 and 2020, Daniel was the lead author of the first nationally representative survey of hate, harassment and positive social experiences in online games, which will be repeated again this year. He also manages the center’s game research and conducts advocacy with the game industry, civil society, government and the broader public to push for an all of society response to ensure that online games become respectful and inclusive spaces for all people. He is the member of the advisory board of Raising Good Gamers and an advisor to the Fair Play Alliance. Find him on twitter@danieljkelley.
