In a letter dated today, the groups said Facebook is now a crucial platform for marginalized communities to share their stories and shine a light on injustice, and that Facebook “is morally obligated to protect that speech.” The social networking giant has been under fire for instances in which it removed imagery depicting police brutality. In August, the site reportedly deactivated the account of an unarmed black woman fatally shot by police after Baltimore law enforcement made an emergency request.
