#StopHateForProfit Social Media Toolkit
Thank you for being a part of the Stop Hate For Profit movement. Building on the early success of #StopHateForProfit – in which over 1,200 companies and non-profits demanded change from Facebook, including some of the most well-known brands in the world, such as Unilever, Verizon, Adidas, Ford, Williams Sonoma, Patagonia and many more – countless individuals have joined the #StopHateForProfit campaign by posting on social media and demanding change. During our September Week of Action, the estimated reach of #StopHateForProfit was 1 billion. We thank all of the public figures who helped raise awareness on social and participated in our Instagram “Freeze.”
Stop Hate For Profit was founded by some of the most prominent civil rights groups and nonprofit organizations in the country including ADL, Color of Change, Common Sense, Free Press, LULAC, Mozilla, NAACP, National Hispanic Media Coalition, and Sleeping Giants.
Facebook has inflicted harm on our society by permitting content that spreads racism, hate and violence and misinformation on voting.
Facebook’s failures lead to real-life violence and sow division, and we’re calling on the company to improve its policies. Facebook spreads misinformation about the election and we need to urge people to vote and demand Facebook stop undermining our democracy. Enough is enough.
Join to change the conversation about Facebook’s danger to society with some of the posts below to explicitly call out Facebook to #StopHateForProfit.
Sample Copy: Facebook claims they address #hate, yet they continue to look the other way as racist, violent groups and posts sow division and split America apart – only taking steps after people are killed. And while they share empty talk about voting, they continue allowing blatant lies and misinformation on election to spread – undermining our democracy.
