Students at Rochester Institute of Technology are taking to social media to take on terrorism. And now they’ve earned the attention of the U.S. State Department for their efforts. The group “It’s Time: ExOut Extremism” aims to fight the propaganda of extremist organizations like ISIL/ISIS through education efforts targeted to young people ages 18-24 online using the hashtag #ExOut. The students will share their ideas with federal government and business leaders on June 27 in Washington, D.C. The RIT team is one of three student groups worldwide selected to present – and the only one from a school in the United States.
