Towards a Hate-proof Freedom of Speech in the Online Platform: Challenges of the Social and Electronic Media

Funded by: US State Department, Small Grants Program

Project Description: This project embraced democratic principles such as human rights, diversity, equality, and dignity while combatting hate speech and discrimination on the internet. We taught our participants how to use social and electronic media responsibly through awareness raising and advocacy in order for them to be able to solve problems regarding hate speech and make a difference in society. The project’s major purpose was to make hate speech free on social and electronic media, to modify teenage views toward hate speech, and to create a platform that would promote the good use of this sort of media.
