Initiative: Hate Helps

The Internet is currently flooded with racist and xenophobic comments.

Hate Helps (“Hass hilft”) is a signal against it: it is an involuntary online donation action. The idea behind this: Everyone inhuman online post in respective social media platforms generates a 1 Euro donation for refugee projects of “Aktion Deutschland Hilft” (a refugee support initiative) and “EXIT-Deutschland” (an exit programme for right-wing extremists). In this way, all haters practically donate against themselves. The funds that make hate comments an involuntary donation are made available beforehand by partners and supporters.

This action can be included in teaching units as an example of coping with right-wing extremism in a most targeted way.

More information is available in German.
