    More than 100 prominent liberal groups are pushing the largest social media companies, such as Facebook, YouTube, TikTok, and Twitter, to moderate and censor more content on the grounds of countering "disinformation" ahead of the 2022 midterm elections. Conservatives have been particularly fearful that such efforts would result in greater censorship of right-leaning content and Republicans. Some notable figures on the Right, such as former President Donald Trump and Steve Bannon, have been banned from major platforms for making statements that the companies say were inflammatory and encouraged violence through disinformation. The liberal organizations, including Common Cause, a watchdog group; the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank; the NAACP; the Anti-Defamation League, a Jewish civil rights group; and certain chapters of Planned Parenthood Votes sent a letter Thursday to the CEOs of tech giants, including Facebook, Google, Snapchat, and TikTok. The groups called on the companies to take more aggressive steps to combat content meant to "confuse, intimidate, and harass voters, suppress the right to vote or otherwise disrupt our democracy."

    In addition to violence being inflicted upon marginalized folks by Republicans—particularly trans people, immigrants, and people of color—at the local and state level, individuals are (sadly) still hurting one another, too. As my coworker Aysha Qamar continues to cover, for instance, we’ve seen countless reports of violence against Asian American Pacific Islanders (AAPI) here in the United States, including the Atlanta spa massacre. As Qamar also highlights, attacks against Jewish people continue to be a terrifying problem. There’s also ongoing state violence when we consider police brutality, particularly against Black men and trans sex workers of color.  According to CNN, a 22-year-old man was attacked while riding the subway in New York City. An unidentified person was caught on video attacking the young man and shouting homophobic slurs while the survivor was riding the A-train in the afternoon on March 19. According to police, the attacker approached the survivor and spit on and threatened them. Police have released a video of the attack in an attempt to have the public help identify the attacker.

There’s a real threat that Russia will commit genocide in Ukraine. As evidence of war crimes emerges, there is reason to believe it may already be taking place. “Russia’s forces have committed war crimes in Ukraine,” U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in a statement on March 23, 2022. Blinken cited as evidence for his allegation Russia’s destruction of “apartment buildings, schools, hospitals, critical infrastructure” and a maternity hospital in the besieged city of Mariupol that was marked with the Russian word for children. Russia has killed at least 1,189 civilians and wounded 1,901 additional Ukrainians since it began its attack on Ukraine in February 2022, according to the United Nations. This actual death toll is likely much higher.
