Legal anti-hate center opens in memory of Shira Banki

The first center in Israel dedicated to handling legal issues regarding hate and incitement on the Internet as well as a general struggle against hate and racism opened its doors on Wednesday with a conference on tolerance.

The center, hosted by IDC’s Radzyner Law School in Herzliya and in cooperation with the Berel Katznelson Fund, will be named after 16-year-old Shira Banki, who was stabbed to death by ultra-Orthodox extremist Yishai Schlissel during the Jerusalem July 2015 Gay Pride Parade.
