The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the Natan Fund have launched a new initiative to encourage the creation of innovative grassroots methods to tackle online hate speech.

Announced earlier this month, ADL on Thursday released an additional call for candidates, who have until February 20 to apply for the Innovate Against Hate prize.

Nonprofit organizations and individuals such as programmers, students, academics, journalists, artists and social entrepreneurs who devise new approaches to uncovering and countering anti-Semitism and other forms of online hate speech, are invited to apply.

Finalists will be notified by the end of March and each of the finalists will be required to appear at a public event where they will present a 10-minute “fast pitch” to a panel of judges, who will then award the grants.  The first-place winner will receive a grant of $35,000, while the runner-up will win a grant of $15,000.
