Less than a year ago, NAACP called out Facebook for its negligence in the spread of propaganda and divisive advertisements in the 2016 Presidential election—ads that maliciously targeted African American users of the platform. We led the week-long protest, #LogOutFacebook, and thousands of supporters like you stood with us and logged out of the platform. In response, Facebook published its Civil Rights report and promised to do better.

However, in recent days Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has publicly defended his decision to keep running political ads containing blatant lies. This is an immense insult to the African Americans who have been bearing the brunt of these lies, while Facebook continues to cash in.

NAACP denounces Facebook’s disregard for civil rights

BALTIMORE (October 21, 2019)—The NAACP joined the National Action Network (NAN) and the National Urban League (NUL) in calling out Facebook over ongoing concerns regarding the platforms’ repeated shortcomings in safeguarding users against unregulated influence from bad actors, both foreign and domestic. Derrick Johnson, President and CEO of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), along with Rev. Al Sharpton, President and Founder of National Action Network (NAN), and Marc Morial, President and CEO of the National Urban League (NUL), jointly signed the letter and delivered it to Zuckerberg via email on Friday, October 18, 2019.

Founded in 1909, the NAACP is the nation’s oldest and largest nonpartisan civil rights organization. Its members throughout the United States and the world are the premier advocates for civil rights in their communities.
