Last week our CEO, Dr Andre Oboler, attended a Summit in Washington DC organised by the Interparliamentary Taskforce on Online Antisemitism. The meetings took place at the US Capitol and involved a working lunch, reception, and hearings in which members of parliaments from various countries heard testimony and asked questions to Special Envoys for Antisemitism from a range of countries, as well as from Meta, Google, Twitter, and TikTok.
