This action is moving online!
To adapt to the call from public health officials for Bay Area gatherings to be canceled or postponed to reduce the spread of COVID-19, we are moving the Sheryl Sandberg protest online. Description below explains how to participate.
Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s Chief Operating Officer, has asked women around the world to “lean in” and do the things they’ve been afraid to do. Now women in her community are asking Sandberg to lean in herself—to get her company to change its dangerous policy of letting politicians blatantly lie in their Facebook ads.
Although Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg takes most of the heat when it comes to Facebook’s enabling the spread of lies, hate, and disinformation, Sandberg is just as responsible for policies that are endangering our very democracy.
*Make a sign with a message on it that you want to deliver to Sheryl Sandberg about the need for her to “Lean In To Stop The Lies”
*Tweet a photo of yourself holding up the sign and use the protest hashtag: #LeanInAgainstLies. Also use these tags: #InternationalWomenDay2020, @sherylsandberg, @facebook
*If you’re not on Twitter, you can send your photo with your name and city to andreabuffa2006 [at] gmail.com
