Princess Nokia is already well known as someone who stands up to hate. She was filmed in a viral video last year slapping and pouring soup on a man who repeatedly yelled “n***a” at a group teenagers. In the video, she throws a take-out container yellow soup at him and yells “get out!”

We imagine an America in which everyone feels safe from hate and bias, no matter what they look like, where they’re from, how they worship, or who they love. To achieve this vision, we connect people with opportunities to learn more about how hate and bias work, get involved in the fight against hate, and support Change Makers already making a difference in local communities and across the country.
Through our programs and content platforms, we will feature the stories Change Makers — individuals and organizations taking a proactive approach to countering hate and creating inclusivity. In consultation with the Erase the Hate Advisory Council, we’ve selected six Change Makers to participate in our first-ever Accelerator against hate. With technology enabling the spread hate in ways we’re only just starting to understand, Erase the Hate fers this new model for putting anti-hate efforts on the fast-track.
This is just the beginning. We’ll be launching additional programs, events and grassroots initiatives in the coming months.
