As the U.S. election approaches, there is a growing possibility of intergroup violence, along with an increase in dangerous and hateful speech. How can we best respond as peacebuilders?  In this hour-long workshop, Cathy Buerger, Director of Research at the Dangerous Speech Project, will discuss one possible response to online hatred – counterspeech. This session will introduce the concept of counterspeech and discuss why it’s a useful response to online hatred. Cathy will also share evidence-based strategies for making counter responses more effective.
