Tanya Gersh - Triumph of Her Will

The founder of a major neo-Nazi website orchestrated a harassment campaign launching a troll storm relentlessly terrorizing Tanya Gersh and her family with anti-semitic threats and messages for months. The threats took an emotional, physical, social, financial, and professional toll on Tanya and her family but Tanya fought back. The Southern Poverty Law Center filed suit in federal court on behalf of Tanya, winning a more than $14 million judgement against the neo-Nazi leader and shut them down. Tanya’s ground breaking case sends a message to extremists and others who spread hate: direct threats are considered acts of terrorism. This will not be tolerated, and there will be serious consequences for those who terrorize—whether online, by phone or in person. Spreading hate is not free speech and participants will be held liable for the consequences of their actions. Tanya won’t let being a victim define her. Her courage and strength to not let hate win, and to assure this never happens again, is a message she has become passionate about sharing. The lawsuit is over, but her work has just begun.
