Why We Invested
Our current political climate has left notions of equality and tolerance to fall to the wayside of hate and fear. While this division affects a wide variety of people, the rise in anti-Muslim rhetoric and actions must specifically be addressed. To do this, community organizing needs to be supported by a strategic, wide-reaching messaging campaign. This grant supports Civic Nation in their partnership with NBC Universal on the Erase the Hate campaign. Through this unique partnership, NBC Universal and Civic Nation will work together to combat prejudice, hate crimes, and the spread of hate speech via digital and social media.
