Sexual Assault PREVENTION *Week* Virtual Harassment Forum
Fri, April 28, 2017, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM CDT
liftUPlift Worldwide is a Chicago-based nonprofit on a global mission to end violence against women. Together with the Chicago Foundation for Women, we are spearheading the first ever Sexual Assault Prevention Week (#SAPWeek) in Chicago, April 23-29. Our goal is to educate, activate and ally over 500 people to recognize early warnings, speak up and take action to prevent sexual assault in their communities.
Lime Red is hosting a unique and special part of SAPWeek on Friday, April 28, which will bring together diverse experts for a conversation on virtual sexual harassment, how it impacts women’s voices in online spaces, and what both men and women can do to fight back.
We will also open this conversation to the public through live tweets and live stream.
Questions we'll address include: What forms does online harassment take? Who is perpetrating online harassment, and why? What's being done to combat online harassment, and, what’s working?
