Facebook creator and CEO Mark Zuckerberg will meet organizers of an advertisement boycott targeted at the social networks platform over hate speech, Reuters reported Wednesday. 

Civil rights groups consisting of the NAACP, Color of Change and the Anti-Defamation League have actually released the “Stop Hate for Profit” project and have a list of needs, consisting of “Find[ing] and remov[ing] public and personal groups concentrated on white supremacy, militia, antisemitism, violent conspiracies, Holocaust denialism, vaccine false information, and environment denialism,” and  9 others.
