In their own words:
United States – Far-right movements motivated by white supremacy, xenophobia, anti-LGBTQI beliefs, antisemitism, religious discrimination, and gender bias have been growing in North America, Europe and other parts of the globe.
Using research, advocacy, and education, the Global Project Against Hate and Extremism aims to counter the rising tide of extremism across borders by:
- Documenting and exposing how extremist and hateful movements use social media and the internet to organize, propagandize, and recruit followers and sympathizers;
- Educating anti-hate actors, policymakers, and the public about extremist movements, their leadership, and their activities;
- Examining how extremist movements influence each other across borders, and specifically analyzing the impact of American extremists on other countries.
By shining light on these racist and hateful activities, and through coordinated campaigns executed by a transnational network, we’ll work toward a global reduction in extremist activities and an associated reduction in mainstream acceptance of bigoted ideologies.
