Night Against Hate

By |2017-02-05T21:25:28+00:00Oct 5, 2016|

The Southern Poverty Law Center’s Extremist Files provides a list of known hate groups. At our Night Against Hate event we will collaboratively try to link the SLC list to social media accounts. This list can then be used by researchers here at UMD and elsewhere to examine the effect that these groups are having online. In addition, we hope to use this event to learn from each other about emerging tools and techniques of self care while working online.

The screening is followed by a panel discussion and Q&A, moderated by MITH's Matt Kirschenbaum.
