The Impacts of Online Hate
Mar 26 @ 7:00 pm

Join the Change the Terms coalition on Tues., March 26, at 7 p.m. ET for an hour-long conversation on the impacts of far-right hate online.

Following the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville in 2017, the tech industry finally started to take real steps to address the spread of hate speech online and the ways their platforms are used to organize, fund and recruit for White supremacists and other hateful online movements. But these companies need to do much more.

Our all-star panel will explore the ways that online hate undermines the health and humanity of progressive activists, people of color, religious minorities, women and LGBTQIA people, and how we can hold tech companies accountable for the violence that occurs on their platforms.
