Take Mark Zuckerberg's name off of San Francisco General Hospital

Take Mark Zuckerberg's name off of San Francisco General Hospital

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s failure to stop hate, lies, racism, and disinformation from running rampant on Facebook is counter to the values San Franciscans hold dear. We urge you to remove his name from our city's prestigious public hospital.

Why is this important?

As San Francisco residents, San Francisco General Hospital patients and staff, and other concerned citizens, we urge the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, SF City Attorney Dennis Herrera, and the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation to remove Mark Zuckerberg’s name from our city’s prestigious public hospital. Mark Zuckerberg’s failure to stop hate, lies, racism, and disinformation from running rampant on Facebook is counter to the values San Franciscans hold dear. He is being pressured to change Facebook’s policies by companies throughout the country that have stopped advertising on Facebook to #StopHateForProfit. San Francisco should support these efforts and remove any mention of Mark Zuckerberg’s name from San Francisco General Hospital until he takes real action to protect the public from lies, hate, and disinformation on the platform he founded.

Reasons for signing

  • Facebook is responsible for the spread of disinformation about COVID-19 among many other things; it has killed thousands and it is a mockery to name a hospital after its founder. It doesn't matter how much money he gave; it doesn't make up for the incalculable damage his product has done.
  • as a consolation prize, put Zuckerberg's face on the inside bottom of every trash receptacle
  • He can have a plaque, but get his name off the building!!
