Airbnb strongly condemns anti-semitism in all its forms and as Jewish people around the world mark the final day of Hanukkah, we are proud to join a broad coalition of individuals and organizations in support of the Anti-Defamation League’s Shine a Light Campaign.
Our purpose is to connect people from around the world and from different backgrounds, and we know travel can break down barriers, build understanding and bring people together. Our teams work every day to build these meaningful connections.
Racism, religious discrimination, hate, and discrimination go against everything we believe in as a company and as a global community. We are deeply committed to fighting bias and discrimination. In 2016, we introduced the Airbnb Community Commitment. All Hosts and guests on our platform must agree to the following commitment in order to use the platform:
“I agree to treat everyone in the Airbnb community – regardless of their race, religion, national origin, ethnicity, skin color, disability, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or age – with respect, and without judgment or bias.”
Since its introduction in 2016, we have banned from our platform more than 1.4 million users who have declined our Community Commitment.
We have more work to do to fight and prevent discrimination, bias, and anti-semitism and we look forward to working with leaders like the Anti-Defamation League as we move forward.
