Do you have information on wrongdoing at Facebook?
Facebook’s outsized influence on community health, safety and our democracy is undeniable. With disinformation and calls to violence flooding peoples’ feeds, the threats we face today are greater than ever. Unfortunately, Facebook leadership is falling short and putting us all at risk.
Facebook employees know what’s happening — sometimes weeks or months or even years before the public ever knows about internal debates.
They can see the enforcement decisions that endanger free and fair elections. They can see how the company is choosing to respond, or not respond, to disinformation and calls to violence.
The New York Attorney General’s office is investigating Facebook, and it wants to hear from those with knowledge of what’s happening at the company. Speaking out now — anonymously and confidentially — could make a huge difference in the future of Facebook and the future of this country.
