This is a Mastodon instance run by the Interlinked Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit devoted to eliminating discrimination. We are an instance that blocks authoritarian political violence, ultra-nationalism, fascism, the alt-right, Stalinism, and authoritarian ideology in general. It's intended to be a safe place for those tired of violent rhetoric as well as a place safe from discrimination.
