Getting Facebook to Rein In Racist Content
With 2.3B users, Facebook is the largest communications platform in the world. This year we’ve worked tirelessly to hold Facebook accountable – persuading them to conduct their first civil rights audit and adopt stronger policies against white supremacist content. We’ve held dozens of meetings with leaders and allies inside, drawing their attention to how the platform has been used to censor Black activists and allow ads that discriminate against Black people. The fight continues. But Facebook has begun restricting racial targeting in ads, removing posts by white nationalists, and taken down posts designed to suppress voting.
