WHY WE ARE DOING THIS
We are saddened to see violence, hate speech, and protests by both sides of the political spectrum in the USA after the 2016 election. In light of this, we have created the Document Hate project, as a resource for reporting violence, harassment, hate speech, or protests in the USA. Ushahidi has been used across the world to allow people to speak up against and bring transparency to harassment and violence, such as HarassMap, SafeCity, and SyriaTracker. The original Ushahidi was used as a means to bring transparency and safety to Kenyans in the post-election violence of 2008.
Sign up for Alerts
