PEN America works closely with media organizations, publishers, universities, professional associations, and other institutions to develop policies, protocols, and resources to better protect and support those facing online abuse. We also offer a robust training program to equip writers, journalists, artists, academics, and activists with strategies and resources to protect themselves and one another. While there are no easy answers, open conversations about the impact of online abuse and how to fight back can empower writers and journalists to remain online and continue exercising their free expression rights.

If you are interested in partnering with us, please contact Viktorya Vilk, PEN America’s Program Director of Digital Safety and Free Expression, at vvilk@pen.org.
