UNH students develop anti-extremism media plan

The Associated Press

DURHAM — University of New Hampshire marketing students are competing with their peers across the country to develop methods of countering violent extremism in communities and online.

The students used a State Department grant to develop a proposal that includes a social media campaign, teaching curriculum and a public pledge to help young people resist radicalization. They will compete against 25 other schools for a chance to present their plan to State Department officials in Washington.

U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, who attended a project presentation Friday, says young people are particularly vulnerable to attempts to spread hate and violence online, so it's critical to have their input and perspective.
