Liberal advocacy group urges Facebook to crack down harder on right-wing misinformation


The liberal women’s group UltraViolet said Monday it met with Facebook last week and urged the company to implement more restrictions on groups spreading ‘right-wing’ disinformation on their platform.

UltraViolet said it met with Facebook director of external affairs Lindsay Elin about the liberal group’s concerns regarding hate and violence directed at women through the platform.

“During the meeting, UltraViolet urged Facebook to implement stricter policies that ban groups who spread disinformation and promote violence—and as an immediate step specifically implementing a policy to protect poll workers from hate and violence by registering poll workers similarly to how the platform registers journalists and candidates for political office,” said Ultraviolet in a statement. “UltraViolet warned that as threats of violence proliferate against election workers, many of whom are women of color, on platforms like Facebook, and as the right-wing ramps up racist, gender-based attacks against Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, the action needed by Facebook is more urgent than ever.”
