Online Radicalization: What can be done?

November 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

In April of 2018, a man ploughed a van into people enjoying a lovely spring day on Yonge Street.  He was inspired by “incel” online hate groups to send a murderous message to the society that rejected him. How can society prevent online communities from encouraging hatred and violence?  What public policy and programs could prevent heinous acts by lonely, angry and desperate people?

 

Alana, the creator of the term “involuntary celibacy”, later abbreviated to “incel”, Melody Devries, PhD Candidate researching far right radicalization, and Greg Elmer, Professor at Ryerson University, joins us for a discussion on online radicalization and what strategies we should be looking at the reduce public safety threats.

We will be at the Madison Avenue Pub (14 Madison Avenue) on Monday November 18.

Doors open at 7:00pm. Discussion starts promptly at 7:15pm.

Please RSVP to let us know you are joining us.
