<![CDATA[NHMC joined 18 additional Civil Rights groups in a letter against Facebook's lack of response to hate speech and bigotry that thrives on their website. The letter states: "As a company and social network platform whose mission is “to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together,”10 we hope that you understand the gravity of this hateful rhetoric and behavior. During a time when antiMuslim, anti-Black, anti-LGBTQ, and anti-immigrant sentiment has swept the nation, it is more important than ever for companies like yours to take an unequivocal stance against bigotry." Signatories to the letter include: Arab American Institute (AAI) Asian Americans Advancing Justice | AAJC Center for Media Justice Center for New Community Color of Change CREDO Human Rights Campaign (HRC) The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) MoveOn.org Muslim Advocates NAACP NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc.
