Are you a data scientist researching hate speech, or an NGO interested in increased situational awareness? Connect with Hatebase tech lead Timothy Quinn to discuss maximizing your use of the Hatebase's dataset.

Welcome to the world's largest online repository of structured, multilingual, usage-based hate speech.

Hatebase was built to assist companies, government agencies, NGOs and research organizations moderate online conversations and potentially use hate speech as a predictor for regional violence. (Language-based classification, or symbolization, is one of a handful of quantifiable steps toward genocide.)

To understand exactly what Hatebase can and cannot do, check out our recent Sentinel Project blog post.

To support Hatebase, please contribute to our database, either by adding vocabulary or by logging sightings and citations.
