Once named by “The Forward” as one of America’s top 50 Jewish Leaders, Charles Jacobs is a journalist and long-time social activist who over two decades has founded human rights and pro-Israel organizations to deal with unmet challenges. Some of these have become national institutions. CAMERA – Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America In 1988, responding to widespread mainstream media bias against Israel, Charles co-founded with Andrea Levin, the Boston branch of CAMERA – Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America -- now the organization’s national office. Today CAMERA is the preeminent Middle East media watch organization in the United States. American Anti-Slavery Group -- In 1993, responding to reports of modern day human bondage, particularly in Africa, where Arab/Muslims were enslaving African blacks, Charles, along with African Christians and Muslims, founded the American Anti-Slavery Group which brought international attention to the enslavement of tens of thousands of mostly-Christian Africans in Sudan by militias armed by the radical Islamic regime in Khartoum. Charles flew several times, illegally, into Sudan on rescue missions that freed thousands of slaves. In September of 2000, Coretta Scott King and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino presented Charles with the first ever Boston Freedom Award for his abolitionist work. Jacobs has testified before Congress numerous times and on October 21, 2002, was invited to the White House signing of the Sudan Peace Act, where he spoke with President Bush. AASG was instrumental in to influencing the President to change US policy on Sudan and enforcing a North-South Peace treaty which ended the slave raids and created the world’s newest state: South Sudan. The David Project -- In the summer of 2002, in response the sudden emergence of a new global anti-Semitism, Charles co-founded The David Project which promotes a fair and honest discussion of the Middle East conflict, and which evolved into a Center for Jewish Leadership. The David Project currently educates thousands of pro-Israel students each year, preparing them for the rhetorical battles on the nation’s campuses. Americans for Peace and Tolerance -- In September of 2008, in response to the threat of Islamic Radicalism’s rapid penetration of American society, and the failure of civic and political leaders to deal with the threat, Charles founded -- with Professor Dennis Hale and Sheikh Ahmed Mansour -- Americans for Peace and Tolerance. APT works to expose and challenge Radical Left and Radical Islamic campaigns that threaten America and the Jews. APT campaigns have helped rid MIT and Northeastern University of radical campus Imams. An anti-Israel “scholar” was demoted at NEU because of an APT video campaign. APT works cooperatively with the Muslim Reform Movement. Charles has been widely published, including in The New York Times, The Boston Globe, The Jerusalem Post, and the Encyclopedia Britannica. He has appeared on local and national television and radio, including NBC, CBS, NPR, CNN and PBS. Charles, who received his doctoral degree in social policy from Harvard, lives with his wife in a suburb of Boston.
