Social media has played a part in the rise of hate crimes around the globe. The shooter in last month's attack in New Zealand parroted far-right conspiracy theories that have been spread on social media. The Tree of Life shooter shared white nationalist posts on Gab, a social media platform favored by Neo Nazis. The problem is serious. And for people like Harvard professor Susan Benesch, it's not to be taken lightly. She speaks in Pittsburgh at a discussion called Beyond Hate: Dangerous Speech in the Era of Social Media. The talk will be held at the Omni William Penn where Benesch will inform participants about dangerous speech, especially online, and the most effective, safe ways to diminish it. Discounted tickets are available to Allegheny County Bar Association members and current law students.
