Stop Hate for Profit Coalition Applauds Biden White House Summit to Reduce the Spread of Hate-Fueled Violence In America — Online And Offline

Washington, D.C, August 19, 2022 — The nation's leading coalition of civic advocacy organizations committed to protecting civil and human rights and the well-being of families online, Stop Hate for Profit (#SHFP) applauds the Biden White House for announcing a summit on what can be done to reduce hate fueled violence in America in the wake of mass shootings rooted in racism, antisemitism, hatred, and America's very real youth mental health crisis.

As a coalition that has focused on the role that social media plays in spreading hate-filled messages, misinformation, and disinformation, we believe the summit is a critical opportunity to shine a bright light on the well documented amplification of hatred by social media platforms in the pursuit of profit. 

We can and must reduce the spread of online hatred and lies that lead to deadly violence.

The Stop Hate for Profit Coalition is led by ADL, NAACP, Color of Change, Common Sense Media, Free Press, LULAC, Mozilla, NHMC, Sleeping Giants, and other leading civic advocacy organizations.
