HOLD TECH COMPANIES ACCOUNTABLE

Pressure social media and other online companies to prohibit extremist, hateful, and racist movements from using their platforms to organize, propagandize, and recruit followers and sympathizers.

Nowhere does hate and far-right extremism thrive more than online and in social media platforms, and no tool is more necessary to the spread of bigoted ideologies and to the recruitment efforts of hate and extremist groups, and the politically powerful. GPAHE is a major source for technology and social media companies on hate speech and dangerous organizations on the far right; we regularly influence social media community standards policies, often resulting in policy improvements and the de-platforming of hate and extremist groups and individuals.

Given the reach of the major technology platforms, it’s critical that they reform and enforce their policies to better protect their consumers and develop the language and cultural competency that is critical to the safety of communities and democracies. Google dominates with more than a 90 percent share of global search engine users. Facebook has nearly 3 billion users; YouTube has more than 2 billion; TikTok has more than a billion, and Twitter more than 300 million. These companies must ensure accuracy and transparency in their policies and algorithms and not give haters, extremists, and authoritarian politicians a platform to divide people, spread lies, or encourage violence toward marginalized communities.
