A coalition of civil rights organization struck Facebook to “generate hatred and bigotry” in a Tuesday card directed to CEO and President Mark Zuckerberg.

The open letter – signed by 31 different groups, including Muslim lawyers, MoveOn, CREDO, MomsRising, the National LGBTQ Working Group, United We Dream and the Million Hoodies Movement for Justice – meet the technology giant to fail to pay attention to repeated warnings about hate speech and groups that exploit the universal social network to stoke religious, racial or political regret.

“We promptly asked you to take action to stop abuse on the platform. However, recent news shows that Facebook not only looked at our problems but also actively worked to undermine the efforts of those who try to keep the company responsible for abuse on the platform , says the letter.

The above line is a reference to Facebook’s employment of a GOP band as among other things, investigating whether the liberal financier George Soros shortened the company’s stock after he noticed the tech giant a “hot” in a speech at the beginning of the year. According to critics, the company used Defendants Public Affairs anti-Semitic troops to target Soros.

“Because of your need to treat the level of legitimate criticism of Facebook as your enemies, did you compromise the safety of people like h are dedicated to their lives to the common good, says the letter. “This decision surpassed all lines of common decency.”

The letter calls for a series of major changes in Menlo Park, the California-based company, including Zuckerberg and Facebook’s COO Sheryl Sandberg, both go down from the board as long as they retain their current titles; that the company expands its board of directors with at least three members to “reflect the diversity” of its 2.2 billion active monthly users, and that the Board appoints an independent and permanent civil rights attorney who would also act as a board member to “carry out consistent and continuous reviews of civic consequences of Facebook’s policies and practices. “

On Tuesday, Sandberg released a Tuesday update on the tech giant civil court review, as COO said is one of her highest priorities for 2019 and very important to her. The ongoing audit has been aided by Laura Murphy, a prominent DC citizen’s right and leader for civil liberties.

The Revision of Civil Rights Rights, which states that Murphy’s team has spent hundreds of hours attending lawyers from communities representing 90 different organizations is primarily looking back at previously announced policy changes and updates from 2018 to address civil society groups concern about voters oppression, content measurements and enforcement, advertising, algorithmic bias, integrity, openness, responsibility and diversity.

“We have witnessed some progress and concrete results, including policy changes, enforcement improvements and greater transparency in certain areas” , Murphy, who worked 17 years as the ACLU Department Head, says in the update. “Facebook has been trying to deepen its commitment to civic communities through this process.”

For 2019, Facebook is planning to focus first on making more progress in the content reporting that the company has said will be an area that always works with and creates an “Civil Rights Infrastructure” to “make sure the changes it makes are systemic “so that questions about civic rights are taken into account when Facebook rolls out new products, features and policies. 19659003] Still, bourgeois advocates tried hard on the revision update saying they expect much more from Zuckerberg’s social network.

“Muslim Advocates and our partners demanded this review in 2017. Laura Murphy’s thorough preliminary report clarifies that Facebook has done little to meaningfully deal with the bigotry and discrimination that permeates its platform. Sheryl Sandberg’s introduction indicates a lack of understanding that after Years and Years of Abuse Useful, significant reforms are urgent now, “said the Muslim lawyer’s special council for anti-Muslim bigotry, Madihha Ahussain, in a statement.

Ahussain continued: “We stick to our letter and demand serious changes on Facebook’s board. The board is not in standing in charge of its management, it does not match the demographic of the user community and it does not understand civil rights and serious reforms are necessary to protect vulnerable societies. “

” This report is long on apologies and short of meaningful progress. to identify only the many challenges we have explained to Facebook. It’s hard to seriously take a paper-thin promise without timeline, benchmarks or liability mechanism, “says a statement from Change of Change, a racial justice organization that met Sandberg in the middle of the Defers- controversy.

The color change continues to require a Chief User Advocate C-Suite, which would work in close consultation with civil rights groups, a public report with recommendations and a timeline for implementation, the establishment of a publicly-controlled committee or working group that has all Resources are needed to make changes to the review and release of all documents produced by Defenders Public Affairs and other companies that used to undermine civic rights.

In a few reports released this week and prepared for the United States Senate Facebook was wrong to allow a massive Russia-led campaign that sowed racial and political discourse in the United States, systematically targeted African Americans, trying to recount them as “assets” in the years before the presidential elections in 2016.

Following the end of the post, Murphy notes that Facebook is planning to issue another review update for Civil Rights 2019.

Separately, NAACP provided a monetary donation from Facebook and encourages users to log out of the social network and the other platforms it owns on Tuesday because of the company’s “involvement with partisan companies, its focus on political opponents, dissemination of wrong information and exploitation of Facebook for propaganda that promotes disingenuous depictions of African American society.”
