CEP is calling on social media companies to immediately take action and adopt policies to stop extremists from misusing these platforms. Extremists have weaponized these online tools to radicalize, recruit, incite to violence – and even – plan terror attacks. Social media companies must take action to effectively combat extremists’ spread of violence and hatred online.
ISIS’s presence on social media is a cancer that continues to spread. It is important for social media companies to adopt CEP’s recommended policies for identifying and removing extremist content and accounts. One of the most pressing public safety and national security issue we face today is the hijacking and weaponization of social media platforms by extremist groups to radicalize and recruit new members, and plan violent attacks against innocent people around the world.
Help us demand action from social media companies. Please sign the petition and join the CEP community in holding these companies accountable. Together we can send a message and demand that they take action to disrupt extremists online.
