Toolkit to Defend K-12 Educators and Librarians Against False Accusations of Antisemitism

When librarians and teachers who include Palestinians in their work are falsely attacked as antisemitic, the consequences can be devastating. As education and speech have become so politicized, it makes sense to ask: If I am falsely accused of antisemitism, how can I defend myself?

The purpose of this toolkit is to explain how false accusations of antisemitism are used to silence Palestinians and their allies in struggles against racism and colonialism. It lays out how K-12 teachers and librarians might realistically come under attack for fulfilling their professional and ethical obligations to include Palestinians in the world we teach to our children. It suggests how you can build support to try to reduce the impacts of attacks before they arise, and constructive ways to respond if they do.
