What we do

This video explains what we do at the Online Hate Prevention Institute and how we do it. Please help us share this video, particularly with people and organisation you believe should know about OHPI, and who might have the capacity to support us financially or partner with us in ongoing projects.

The Online Hate Prevention Institute (OHPI) is Australia’s only charity dedicated to the problem of online hate. Our focus ranges from cyber-racism, online religious vilification and other group based forms of online hate, through to the cyber-bullying of individuals.

We are world leaders at what we do; our CEO was the first to warn of antisemitism in social media, coining the term “antisemitism 2.0” in 2008. For the last five years he has served as co-chair of the Online Antisemitism Working Group of the Global Forum to Combat Antisemitism.

THIS VIDEO explains the work we do including research, campaigning, public education, policy work and law reform recommendations, and seek ways of changing online systems to make them more effective at reducing the risk to the community which online hate creates. Ultimately, at OHPI we aim to find ways to create systemic change that reduces the risk of harm both now and into the future.

OHPI tackles emerging problems that falls outside the criteria of most foundations. The need for OHPI is greater than ever, and we are looking for supporters to enable us to tackle the growth in online hate. In Australia we have DGR charity status and we are happy to provide a tax deductible receipt for donations.
