Rx for Online Harassment: Preparation, Response, Support, and Self-Care
Join PEN America at this year’s Online News Association conference in New Orleans for an Online Harassment Self-Defense training. Online harassment poses a growing threat to press freedom, especially for writers of color, LGBTQIA+ individuals, and women, who face disproportionate abuse in retaliation for their work. Learn tools and strategies to defend yourself. This session is designed for:
- Newsrooms looking to better understand and confront harassment
- Reporters reliant on online engagement who find themselves especially susceptible to abuse
- Allies that would like to ameliorate the exhausting, traumatic impacts on online abuse”
This event is free with conference admission.
