Today’s Action: Tell businesses to stop advertising on Facebook for one month

Facebook, despite repeated calls from activists for many years, has remained staunchly unwilling to take rigorous steps to reduce hate speech and misinformation from its platform, and proactively address its participation in furthering political dishonesty and inciting actual violence in our country and abroad.

Just recently, Twitter has begun to listen and respond – for example, by flagging several of Trump’s tweets inciting his followers into acts of violence against protesters or lying about the security of mail-in voting. But Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has refused to act.

98% of Facebook’s revenue, $70 billion in 2019, comes from advertising. Since Facebook won’t listen to activists, the activists are going after Facebook’s advertisers…who increasingly are more sensitive about the optics of partnering with harbingers of hatred.

The multi-organizational campaign is called Stop Hate For Profit, calling on businesses to cancel advertising on Facebook for ONE MONTH this July. We can support their efforts with the full power of the consumer voice.

(AT LEAST) THREE WAYS TO FIND YOUR FACEBOOK ADVERTISERS:

  1. When logged into Facebook, click on ad preferences. Scroll down to “Advertisers and Businesses” from there.
  2. Click on Recent Ad Activity to find the ads you have recently clicked on, if you’ve interacted with any at all.
  3. …simply scroll through your News Feed. You’ll probably start seeing ads within 10-30 seconds.

ONCE YOU’VE FOUND YOUR ADVERTISERS:

  1. Choose three businesses that you’ve had the most interaction with (purchases, memberships, donations, etc).
  2. Contact them through their website or on social media. Ask them to “Stop Hate For Profit” by ceasing advertising on Facebook for the month of July, and send them www.StopHateForProfit.org for more information.
  3. Use the hashtag #StopHateForProfit on social media and spread the word on this campaign.

“Like” if you think it’s time to hold Facebook accountable. And then take action.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition telling states to guarantee equal rights for LGBTQ Americans, and check out the brilliant “Don’t Think of an Elephant” by George Lakoff — a quick read that contains the ultimate keys for Democrats to win elections — and arguments.
