We do believe that the majority of Americans actually reject hate, and that it’s just a matter of trying to amplify those voices rather than have the voices that are hateful speak louder. – Madihha Ahussain
The civil liberties nonprofit Muslim Advocates released its new report, “Click Here to End Hate: Anti-Muslim Bigotry Online & How To Take Action,” on May 6, 2014. It’s a comprehensive look at some of the well-organized and well-funded online initiatives to foment distrust and bias against followers of Islam in this country and beyond. The report also offers practical tactics for responding to the most destructive deployments of this kind of propaganda.
Lead author Madihha Ahussain, Staff Attorney with Muslim Advocates, overviews the report for State of Belief.
