Countering Hate Speech
NYU Peer 2 Peer (P2P)-WISE Voices of New York_RESOLVE Campaign aims to challenge hate speech and propose counter narratives engaging in service-oriented cooperation with local and international partners. The rhetoric of hate speech is increasingly present in Western society, targeting immigrants and religious minorities in particular. A rise in Islamophobia can be seen in the United States and abroad, particularly in countries with upcoming general elections during 2017 such as Germany and France, where the rhetoric of the Far Right has become more dangerous. VNY_RESOLVE aims to counter hate speech with its emphasis on advocacy in the local community, social media and a YouTube channel.
