Free training: Defending Against Online Harassment
April 13 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
If you’re a journalist, you’ve probably been harassed online. And if you’re a person of color, research shows you’re more likely to be harassed than your white peers.
Want help defending against these attacks? Sign up for AAJA Atlanta’s free training, brought to you by PEN America, a nonprofit organization that works to defend and celebrate free expression in the United States and worldwide.
Building on PEN America’s Online Harassment Field Manual, this training session, presented in partnership with the National Association of Hispanic Journalists of Atlanta, and the Atlanta Association of Black Journalists, equips writers and journalists, as well as their allies and employers, with practical tools and strategies to defend against online abuse, including: preparation, response, legal considerations, self-care, and best practices for offering support.
While there are no easy answers, open conversations about the impact of online harassment and how to fight back can empower writers and journalists to stay online and continue exercising their free expression rights.
This session is free for members of PEN America, AAJA’s Atlanta Chapter, NAHJ Atlanta, and the AABJ, but advanced registration is required.
This venue is wheelchair accessible. For more information or questions on accessibility, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
