Hate Cope

Our new game to fight hate speech called, which is in development on mobile, video and board game platforms. South Sudan has 62 tribes and each tribe has hate speech which targets the others and incites violence. Many people don’t know how to effectively respond to hate speech in their communities, so the game is designed to educate youth and children on the dangers of hate speech. The game is made to be a penalty game with scores, and it utilizes Peace Tech Lab’s Lexicon of documented hate speech from South Sudan so it is relevant to the language used by the population playing the game. The purpose is to teach the player about the consequences of hate speech and prevent its use.
