The White House


This summer, the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security will undertake targeted engagements with the Jewish community to understand and help address their security needs.

The Biden-Harris Administration calls on Congress to hold social media platforms accountable for spreading hate-fueled violence, including antisemitism, by requiring fundamental reforms to Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act and by removing special immunity for online platforms; to impose much stronger transparency requirements on online platforms, including their algorithmic recommendation systems, content moderation decisions, and enforcement of community standards; and to pass legislation requiring platforms to enable timely and robust public interest research, including on the spread of antisemitism and other forms of hate, using platforms’ data and analyzing their algorithmic recommendation systems, while maintaining users’ privacy.

The President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities will work with national and local leaders in the public, private, and non-profit sectors to bolster social cohesion in America, and combat hate and targeted violence.

The White House Office of Public Engagement will launch the Ally Challenge, inviting Americans to describe their acts of allyship with Jewish, Muslim, or other communities that are not their own. The White House will recognize leaders of outstanding projects.
The White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships will, in cooperation with federal agency Centers for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships and diverse faith leaders, produce a toolkit for faith communities on standing in solidarity with other religious communities to combat antisemitism and other forms of hate.

The Department of Veterans Affairs will expand its chaplain partnership with Jewish, Muslim, and other chaplain associations and facilitate local multi-faith partnerships among chaplains of diverse faiths.
