The Online Hate Prevention Institute is pleased to invite NGOs, community organisations, academic institutions, government agencies and departments, foundations and other organisations to become supporters of our tool for combating online hate. This tool is a world first, and further information about it is available on these pages.
Becoming a supporter
Supporting Fight Against Hate is a statement against the rising levels of hate speech in social media. This includes cyber-racism, cyber-bullying, online misogyny, religious vilification, homophobia, serious trolling and other online threats to individuals, communities, and the public good of a safe and inclusive society.
The logos of supporters are displayed on our supporters page here.
A one paragraph statement from each supporter is included on the supporters pages. This should:
Speak about the importance of tackling online hate.
Where relevant, briefly mention what they do to combat online hate.
Where relevant, speak about the impact of online hate they see / deal with.
Where relevant, speak about the benefits of the tool to the supporter.
(e.g. how will the organisation be helped by access to a database of online hate, or by researchers looking at hate against people represented by the organisation?)
Say something positive about the release of the tool e.g.
- congratulate OHPI on its work
- welcome the launch of the tool
- encourage everyone who sees hate to use the tool
Supporters will be offered the opportunity to setup their own team in the system and invite their supporters to join their team. Teams are important as they allow information to be shared. All members of a team can see the reports made by other members of that team. An organisation can use a team in order to collect its own information from its own supporters.
Supporters will be invited to join the stakeholder group that will be consulted as further develops are made to the software
In the second half of 2015 supporters will be invited to take part in free trials of advanced tools for processing and access the database of hate. These advanced tools will later be licensed to approved organisations and agencies in return for a fee which will support OHPI's work (including further development of the online tool).
There is no financial commitment to becoming a supporter, but we must receive a one paragraph statement and suitable logo. OHPI may limit the number of supporters or reject specific applications at its sole discretion.
Becoming a sponsor
OHPI is a Harm Prevention Charity and able to accept tax deductible donations. Foundations, companies, or individuals who have donated $5,000 or more to OHPI will be offered acknowledgement as sponsors in our promotional material. OHPI is seeking an additional $400,000 over the next two year to support further development of this system (Phase 2 & Phase 3). These later phases will improve the accuracy of the system through the addition of artificial intelligence, and will improve the usefulness of the tool by providing greater capabilities for organisations and agencies using the tool to sort and search for specific data, or needing to be informed of critical data in real time.
To become a sponsor, please contact our CEO, Dr Andre Oboler, or make a donation.
