Tell Facebook not to Blackout our Democracy!

Free and fair elections are the lifeblood of a healthy democracy. Unfortunately, in the United States, there are troubling signs that the upcoming 2020 elections will be marred by widespread misinformation campaigns. We aren't going to let this happen without a fight.

In 2016, Facebook was hijacked by a Russian effort to interfere with the elections. Before and after that date, the social network site has been successfully used by extremist groups to recruit and radicalize followers, with little in the way of meaningful action from the multi-billion-dollar corporation to do anything about it. Time and time again, Facebook executives have chosen to put profits over public safety and the integrity of our democracy. 

Facebook does almost nothing to stop the vile racism and disinformation spread to millions. So it's up to us to take action. 

Take action today, and pledge to support efforts to pressure Facebook to clean up its act, so that it can no longer be used as a megaphone to spread lies and hate.
