Facebook has been highly criticized for what it allows on its platform. Erroneous political ads and also what civil rights groups are calling violence-inciting hate speech. 

Groups like Color of Change and Muslim Advocates have been calling on the platform to address that content. On November 4th, they were invited for a private, off-the-record dinner with Mark Zuckerberg at his Palo Alto home.

What did they talk about and what was the outcome? Madihha Ahussein, special counsel for anti-Muslim bigotry at Muslim Advocates, shares how it went.
