Calling out the Haters: YOUR reflections on what works (or not) in policing online harassment

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Around the world, women and LGBT advocates, activists, techies and journalists are reclaiming their agency and freedom of expression online by standing up to tech-based hate speech, threats and intimidation. In this session, we will explore and share creative, community-based, collaborative (and compassionate) tactics starting with experts from Pakistan, Turkey, and the United States. Then, we’ll hand the mic to YOU in a facilitated dialogue to capture challenges and potential solutions.

Come join us to share your experiences with alternative ways to prevent, mitigate and document online harassment, be it via campaigns, policy engagements, specialized tools, partnerships or other tactics. Together, we’ll consider best practices to share with governments, tech companies, and developers (who are welcome to join us!) to document these solutions and pave a way forward on these complex problems.

*Every effort will be made to ensure a safe space for survivors to share their stories via Chatham House Rules.
