Tell Twitter: Take Action to Ban White Supremacists Before Even More People Get Harassed, Hurt or Worse
Twitter is still providing a microphone and platform to prominent white supremacists and is refusing to ban them.
Twitter has emboldened white supremacists and allowed them to organize hateful real-world events and publicize their acts of violence. The company’s inaction is endangering people of color, immigrants, religious minorities, LGBTQIA+ people and women, who are all common targets of organized online hate.
Meanwhile, we’ve worked for years in coalition with national organizations that have a track record of fighting hate online and we’ve worked together to create policies tech companies can adopt to stop the flow of hate.1 Twitter has begun to step up to the plate, but more needs to be done, and fast.
Tell Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to ban white supremacists and takedown racist, sexist, xenophobic and transphobic language that puts vulnerable communities at risk, because inaction is no longer an option.
