Hacking Hate and Extremism

Setup

Fake news. Extremist propaganda. Religious intolerance. Trolling. Sexual harassment. Bullying. And we haven’t even talked about grumpy cat emojis. Social media is being successfully used and abused by hate groups to promote a toxic agenda that often marginalizes and targets religious and ethnic minorities and women. Every day, it seems that a handful of bad guys have the upper hand. How can we push back? How are the private sector and government responding to this global phenomenon that is disrupting elections, empowering hate groups, and threatening communities worldwide? In this session, we highlight how technology, innovation, and organic grassroots mobilization has created digital tools and narratives that fight back against extremism by promoting pluralism and digital literacy.
