At a time when the internet is criticised for fuelling division and distrust, this project aims to help demonstrate the incredible power YouTube has to generate a positive social impact. YouTube Creators for Change is a new initiative dedicated to amplifying the voices of role models who are tackling difficult social issues with their channels. From combating hate speech, to countering xenophobia and extremism, to simply making the case for greater tolerance and empathy towards others, Creators for Change is committing $1 million in equipment and production grants to identify and empower emerging creators who want to speak out on these crucial topics.
