Over the last few years, hate crimes and anti-Muslim discrimination have been on the rise. At the same time, many politicians and public figures have used their profile and influence to spread fear and encourage violence. These voices are amplified on social media and help create a space for others to echo and build upon anti-Muslim sentiments and hate, and in turn foster an environment where it is acceptable, for some, to engage in acts of violence and discrimination.
Click Here to End Hate documents the scope of anti-Muslim hate online, and offers tools for American Muslims and all Americans who reject fear and hate to report abusive content to Internet companies and to engage in effective counterspeech. In addition, the report explains Internet company policies and the limitations of the law to combat online hate and provides recommendations for Internet companies to ensure their platforms create safe communities online.
