New Interactive Maps Detail Geography, Intensity of Campus Antisemitism

A new interactive map project created by a watchdog group highlights “three key ingredients of campus antisemitism,” its initiator told The Algemeiner on Wednesday.

Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, founder of the AMCHA Initiative, which monitors antisemitism on campus, said, “The maps show very clearly, in one glance…[the] intensity, geographical spread and mode of transmission” of the phenomenon at universities and colleges around the US.

One map tracks swastika graffiti; another tallies anti-Israel boycott motions passed by student governments since 2012; a third lists faculty members who have supported anti-Israel initiatives.

“We hope these new visual tools will help decision-makers better understand the pervasive nature of the problem, the schools where things are escalating most rapidly and the distinct vehicles that antisemitism uses to infest campus life,” Rossman-Benjamin said.

As The Algemeiner reported, last week AMCHA launched a Facebook photo gallery of antisemitic incidents on campus.
