New Guide for Reporting Antisemitic Incidents

Anti-Defamation League New England (ADL) and CJP are pleased to announce a new collaboration which has resulted in the creation of an informative resource guide to effectively support our community members in reporting antisemitic or bias incidents.

Everyone has a role in confronting antisemitism and hate when they see or experience it. This guide provides a step-by-step approach to reporting, which is a very important action in standing up and speaking out about antisemitism and hate. By reporting, you are helping us monitor trends, improve communal security, direct resources where the needs are greatest, and advocate for funding to combat bias and bigotry in our communities. In addition to sharing this guide widely, please report incidents on this website
