Donate Now to Support Research and Evaluation that will Help Communities Fight Antisemitism, Islamophobia, and Hate

Our nation is facing an unprecedented surge in antisemitic violence and incendiary speech. Nationwide, we must act now to prepare policies, programs, and practices to help communities eradicate antisemitism, Islamophobia, and other hate-motivated incidents.

The Institute for Community Studies’ Hate Crime Research Center (HCRC) identifies hate crime programs that have the potential to be evaluated. In 2024, we will be implementing an evaluation of the Not In Our Town initiative addressing the Tree of Life synagogue massacre in Pittsburgh and antisemitic violence in Rhode Island.

To expand upon this valuable work, we need your help. Your support will allow us to rigorously evaluate additional promising programs, and then create evidence-based critical tools for communities.  These tools will inform consequential decisions, shape bold solutions, and implement new and scientifically validated effective strategies, programs, and policies that can stop the growing tide of antisemitism, Islamophobia, hate crime, and related violence in our communities.
