Registration is open! Take part in the Code Against Hate 2 hackathon!

Code Against Hate 2, the second international hackathon for identifying and moderating hate speech, takes place on 19th–21st March. Find out more and register to take part on the hackathon home page!

Anyone who is interested in reducing hate speech online is welcome to join, whether you already have a great idea or not. We definitely need programmers in each team, but coming up with clever and creative solutions requires ideas from people with many different backgrounds. Register to take part for example if you are involved with human rights, you’re a great designer, you have an IT or social science background, or if you’re a bright media specialist!

This is the second such hackathon organised by the Human Rights Centre and our OpCode project partners. The winning solution of the first Code Against Hate hackathon back in September warns of potential hate speech while it is being composed.

Check out the event on Facebook too!

Since you are here...

It is important to protect everyone’s human rights, because it helps to keep stability and peace in the society. There are many challenges for protection of human rights in Estonia: intolerance has really come out of the closet. Bad things happen when good people are too passive, but together we can make a change.

Estonian Human Rights Centre is the competent, accountable and impactful independent human rights organisation in Estonia. Your recurring or one-time donation helps to stand up for human rights everywhere: in courts, in the media, in schools, in the workplace, on the streets and in governmental venues.

Donating is easy, and you can use your credit card if donating from abroad.
