Digital violence affects us all

Digital violence affects us all Especially people who are affected by discrimination in other areas of everyday life. And even more so as soon as they take a stand online – for their concerns. Or the needs and viewpoints of others.

HateAid stands up to protect this freedom of expression. We are convinced that freedom of expression is a great good. However, it also has its limits. Pointing out these limits is important so that everyone can express their opinions free from fear of hate and incitement.

And in doing so, HateAid ultimately helps us all: if people are not silenced, if disinformation cannot be spread, the internet becomes a place where equal participation is made possible for all.

Your donation helps

87% of our income is used for appropriate purposes and thus goes directly to counselling, education, campaigning and law enforcement. Click here to find out more about how we use our finances (German only).

What exactly do we do?
  • We advise new clients every day – and have already supported over 2,700 private clients.
  • We help with legal costs – digital violence victims have filed over 1,000 criminal charges with our support.
  • We run weekly workshops on digital privacy, evidence gathering and community management, sharing our knowledge with other NGOs, law enforcement, political parties and businesses.
  • We keep over 66,000 followers up to date on hate on the internet on our social media channels.
  • We conduct analyses on hate and disinformation campaigns and provide them to top media and news agencies such as Reuters.
  • We stand up for the rights of victims of digital violence in court: in Germany, we participate in digital policy legislative processes to improve the legal framework for those affected. We are conducting a landmark case against Facebook and have even gone as far as the Federal Constitutional Court.. Further lawsuits are in the pipeline to strengthen users’ rights.
  • At EU level, we are supporting the implementation of the Digital Services Act and are pushing forward a directive on gender-based digital violence. In this way, we ensure that the rights of those affected are heard.

In 2021, only 13.3% of our income was donations, which we are free to use. By 2025, we aim to double our income from unrestricted donations to offset funding shortfalls and be more agile in responding to emerging issues.
