In 2020, 16-year-old Henry Kerr wanted to learn more about online hate and extremism. He crafted a survey and shared it with youth across Alberta. The results showed that online hate is a severe problem for many young people, who often suffer in silence. Wanting to do something about it, Henry and some of the survey respondents formed Don’t Click, a youth-led initiative to support other youth on the issue of online hate and violent extremism. The Don’t Click Initiative works to give people the tools to handle negativity online – both for themselves and as bystanders. A new documentary has been released following their story.

Provincial Hate Study
Hate and hate-motivated incidents in our province continue to be a problem that needs addressing.
The Alberta Government commissioned us to write a report about hate in the province, and how to address it. This study will help inform provincial policy addressing hate.
We’re asking Albertans to fill out this survey to help us understsnd and address the problem of hate in our province.
