This session is a hands-on workshop with researcher Alheli Picazo and the Canadian Anti-Hate Network on tracking and expose far-right groups in Canada. Participants will learn about the various groups in Canada, how to spot an alt-right neo-Nazi even if they're 'crypto', easy open-source data collection, and techniques to discover who's behind an anonymous account. We'll go through a case study of how we exposed a neo-Nazi propagandist and then open our laptops to go through examples of the social media presence of various hate groups. We will also briefly cover what our courts and law enforcement might consider 'hate speech'. It's our goal that by the end of the session participants should have the foundation to start finding their own stories.

Participants should bring a laptop and a notepad.
