July 1 General Synod Workshop in Baltimore: Break Hate - Stop Online Hate Speech

UCC OC Inc. will lead a workshop on how to fight back against hate speech when the UCC’s 31st General Synod meets in Baltimore this weekend. The workshop, “Break Hate!,” will be held on July 1 from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. in Room 342 of the Baltimore Convention Center.

OC Inc. Policy Adviser Cheryl Leanza will be joined by Tyler Cherry of Media Matters for America, and Carmen Scurato, of the National Hispanic Media Coalition, founder of the Coalition Against Hate. The workshop will review how to identify fake news and hate speech, and how to influence content online and on television while preserving First Amendment rights.
