How to combat the recent rise in antisemitic incidents in Austin

Austin has been the target of some nasty attacks by hate groups The ADL has some good advise on how to deal with this crap

Lafair says ADL Austin encourages people who see one of these stickers or flyers to take a picture and report it to 311 and to ADL.org/reportincident. Then remove the sticker or flyer.

“We collect the information because, as everyone knows, data drives policy,” she said. “So we collect data to look for trends, to see if there's anything or any coincidences or things that we need to know about to provide help to both researchers, policymakers and law enforcement on how best to handle these issues.”

Amy Kristin Sanders, an associate professor of journalism and law at UT Austin, also encourages people to notify the city of such incidents and take down stickers. In addition to calling 311, you can report incidents online.....

KUT has seen reports of individuals who spoke out against the recent incidents being doxxed online by a white supremacist group. (KUT is choosing not to name the group.) Doxxing is when a person publicly discloses revealing information about someone, such as their name and where they live and work. This information is circulated online without the victim’s permission.

Lafair encourages people who have been targeted online to report such instances to ADL Austin, so the organization can send them resources. She also recommends visiting OnlineSOS.org, which offers advice on how to mitigate online harassment, including an action plan if doxxing happens to you.
