Muslim Advocates Applauds New Bill Adding Reforms to Section 230

WASHINGTON – Today, Sens. Mark R. Warner (D-VA), Mazie Hirono (D-HI) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) introduced the Safeguarding Against Fraud, Exploitation, Threats, Extremism and Consumer Harms (SAFE TECH) Act. This bill will enact needed reforms to Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act that allow social media companies to finally be held accountable for the real world threats, harassment and discrimination that their platforms enable. The following is a quote from Muslim Advocates Special Counsel for Anti-Muslim Bigotry Madihha Ahussain:

“For too long, companies like Facebook and YouTube have undermined the rights and safety of Muslims and communities of color in the U.S. and around the world. We have urged them to take responsibility for the targeted hate and violence, including genocide, facilitated by their platforms but these companies have refused to act. Senators Warner, Hirono and Klobuchar’s SAFE TECH Act makes essential adjustments to Section 230 that will allow these companies accountable to finally be held accountable for violating people’s rights and jeopardizing their safety.”
