Communications and Campaigns Lead

About GPAHE:

The mission of the Global Project Against Hate and Extremism (GPAHE) is to strengthen and educate a diverse global community committed to exposing and countering racism, bigotry, and hate, and associated violence; and to promote the human rights values that support flourishing, inclusive societies and democracies. White supremacy and far-right extremism are global problems that require global solutions. Launched in 2020, GPAHE employs research, advocacy, activism, and education to counter the rising tide of white supremacy and extremism across borders, the undermining of democracy, and growing authoritarianism by: documenting and exposing how extremist and white supremacist movements and the politically powerful use social media and the internet to organize, propagandize, and recruit followers and sympathizers; educating anti-hate actors, policymakers, and the public about extremist movements, their leadership, and their activities; examining how extremist movements influence each other across borders, and specifically analyzing the impact of American extremists on other countries; advocating for policy change to combat rising far-right extremism; and building multi-national, cross-sector coalitions to identify and combat hate speech and the growth of far-right extremism.
