November ONADC Meetup - Online Hate Speech Around The Globe

For the upcoming ONA meetup, Internews project Director, Will Ferroggiaro will discuss Internews’ human rights program which focuses on the role of media in conflict, whether inciting violence or mitigating its causes. Currently, Internews works with local partners in Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, and Burma to monitor media for hate speech.

He’ll open up a discussion on things such as:

· What type of hate speech is online—and why?

· What about the online environment is conducive to hate speech?

· What is the role of journalists and hate speech?

· What are the consequences for hate speech online in countries in transition as opposed to developed countries like the USA?

Internews is an international non-profit organization whose mission is to empower local media worldwide. Internews is currently on the ground in 49 countries working to improve news and information quality, increase coverage of vital issues, expand information access, advocate for media law and policy, strengthen the viability of local media and deliver innovative media solutions.

    So, I've closed RSVPs on Meetup so I don't have to reprint the check-in list, but if you do want to come, please do!

    Wish I could attend, but event conflics with another journo-related commitment on same night. Looking forward to reading a Storify or video chronicling the discussion.

    Seconding Danielle's comment, really wish this were a different night, since DataViz's meetup is on Data Journalism. Two journo events on one night is tough, folks!

    Aw, unfortunately we're hosting an event that night in Baltimore. Sounds like a great event, though!

    Looks like a great topic, but the meetup is at the same time as the DataViz DC meetup. :(
