To Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg:

Twitter and Facebook must take down falsehoods and lies that misrepresent the voting process in the 2020 election. This is an urgent matter of democracy, human rights and public safety.

Labeling posts is not enough. Misleading claims about the 2020 vote must be immediately removed.

You must deplatform any and all claims that:

  • delegitimize mail-in voting
  • undermine the counting of all votes that were cast in accordance with previously established local, state and federal laws
  • cast doubt on election outcomes on the sole basis of partisanship

Disinformation is always dangerous, but in this moment it directly undermines the likelihood of a peaceful transfer of power, endangering lives across the country and the very future of our form of government.

This is not business as usual. This isn’t about supporting one party or candidate over the other. It’s about protecting the vote, the most fundamental building block of our democracy. For companies like Facebook and Twitter, this is a defining moment: Will you protect democracy and public safety?

    Tell Facebook & Twitter: Stop Election Lies

    Like all of you, we’ve been paying close attention to the aftermath of the 2020 election. And we’ve been sharply focused on how the media and social-media platforms have responded to President Trump and his enablers attempts to sow doubt, spread disinformation and discredit the election results — despite a total lack of evidence.

    Trump’s reach on social media is massive and the platforms aren’t doing enough to curb his lies. Facebook has added weak content warnings and is still allowing his messages to be shared. And as Trump continues to tweet false claims, his repeated violations are still reaching hundreds of thousands of people.

    Our democracy hangs in the balance. Tell Facebook and Twitter to remove lies about the 2020 election.
