The AMCHA Initiative is a non-profit organization dedicated to investigating, documenting, educating about, and combating antisemitism at institutions of higher education in America.
While diminishing antisemitic behavior is our central focus, what drives us is the desire to protect Jewish students from both direct and indirect assault and fear while attending colleges and universities.
The Investigative Taskforce on Campus Antisemitism (ITCA) is AMCHA Initiative’s research arm. ITCA carries out systematic, in-depth research and analysis of antisemitic activity and has developed a comprehensive method for defining, documenting, and analyzing manifestations of antisemitic behavior on campus, as well as the institutional structures that legitimize it and allow it to flourish.
AMCHA uses the results of ITCA’s research and analysis to inform university administrators and the public about the antisemitic incidents, the individuals and groups that are perpetrating them, and to pressure university leaders to act.
AMCHA also mobilizes community activists and has developed a model of response that can be used to impact campuses across the country.
