Pittsburgh to Host Eradicate Hate Global Summit

 


The Eradicate Hate Global Summit kicks off in Pittsburgh, PA on September 19, 2022. It grew out of the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in U.S. history. In October 2018, a heavily armed gunman massacred worshipers from three different congregations at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life Synagogue. The Eradicate Hate organizers were driven by the horror of this attack to create the world’s most effectively coordinated offensive against hate and extremist violence.


The Summit will discuss and actively work toward effective strategies to globally eradicate violent acts spawned by hate. The agenda illustrates both the magnitude of our vision and the fact that we have amassed a wide-ranging group of experts to address critical issues that form the foundation for extremist hate.

Experts from government, academia, law, the non-profit sector, corporations, and journalism; will be converging on Pittsburgh for the event, which will be framed by a search for effective on-going solutions to extremist violence.
