Hacking Hate Speech on Social Media in Chile
Hello everyone, thanks to the work of our entire team and the help of each of the donors, we continue to work to combat hate speech in Chile. Especially in the COVID context. This has forced us to rethink our workshops and work with our volunteers. Which has allowed us to continue fighting hate speech.

We will soon have some results of our work between June 2019 and June 2020. And we take advantage of telling you that we are currently in talks to work in Colombia and Argentina. We'll be keeping you posted on what's new soon so we can keep moving forward and comment on hate speech.

Hello everyone, thanks to the work of our entire team and the help of each of the donors, we continue working to fight hate speech in Chile. We are making progress in generating new filters and being able to automate some processes in order to be more efficient in our work. We are working on planning our 2020 to be able to take new groups of volunteers who want to support our cause. In March we will have results to tell you about our first pilot.


On the other hand, we will generate new workshops for senior groups and youth groups that allow an important group of volunteers to denounce the expressions of hatred that are being generated.

Best regards
