Supporting the voices that are engaged in Counterspeech

Learning to speak up.

Rise to the challenge. Increase awareness and knowledge. Promote accessibility to Counterspeech tools, resources, and guidance. And, above all, elevate the dialogue beyond the reach of fear, hate, and violence.

So that more speak out.

When hate makes headlines - and our personal news feeds - responding with silence is no longer an option. Not knowing what to say is no longer an excuse. Racism, violence, extremism, and hate survive without opposition, and so we must stand opposed, together.

As a community, a social platform, and a gathering of the shared human experience, Facebook supports critical Counterspeech initiatives by enforcing strong content policies and working alongside local communities, policymakers, experts, and changemakers to unleash Counterspeech initiatives across the globe.
