Engaging GAAMAC's community in a series of online talks about hate speech to prepare their November 2021 global meeting



Global Action Against Mass Atrocity Crimes (GAAMAC), together with The Montreal Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies (MIGS) organized "Decoding Hate Speech," a series of four online panels that brought together over 200 participants to hear transdisciplinary experts reflect on the causes and impact of technology on hate speech and atrocity prevention. These talks were events for the community to prepare for GAAMAC IV, their global meeting, in November 2021.

Sonder’s process started by connecting with GAAMAC's internal team to build a shared understanding of what the events’ participatory spaces would feel and look like. Sonder then, supported GAAMAC in designing the guidelines for each panel session and the online facilitation tools that encouraged community participation. During the sessions Sonder live captured the main takeaways of the conversation, and, at the end of the process,  synthesized and visualized the community's needs, learnings, and insights.
