We invite you to watch our webcast What You Can Do to Stop Lies and Hate on Facebook.  (The webcast gets started 2 mins in.)

Even as people across the United States rise-up in a massive and unprecedented rebuke to racist policing, Facebook’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg continues to resist simple demands that he control the spread of hate, lies, and disinformation on the world’s biggest social media platform.

We talked with

  • Jeffrey Chester of Center for Digital Democracy,
  • Fadi Quran of Avaaz,
  • Carmen Scurato at Free Press, and
  • Andrea Buffa of Protest Facebook (a coalition led by Global Exchange and Media Alliance).

The conversation will be moderated by Tracy Rosenberg of Media Alliance.

Now, as dissent builds “inside” Facebook, we are further turning-up the “outside” pressure.  You can learn more about our campaign at www.protestfacebook.org.

This event was co-sponsored by Global Exchange [ http://www.globalexchange.org ], Media Alliance [ https://media-alliance.org/ ] and the Protest Facebook Coalition [ http://protestfacebook.org/ ].

 We need you with us. Facebook is a multibillion-dollar behemoth, with near monopoly power and deep pockets. Can you make a donation today to help support this important campaign?  With your help we’re planning to expand our efforts right now.
