Nonprofit seeks to end Ebola stigma
A nonprofit has launched a website and hotline to help people in the African community who say they are being harassed and discriminated against because of Ebola.
African Communities Together's website, African Defense, tracks and responds to cases of Ebola stigma across the country. The website launched Monday and so far, five people have submitted stories.
Executive Director Amaha Kassa says the group is planning to add information about Ebola symptoms on the website, as well as legal information for those who wish to file complaints.
