Speaker: Danielle Keats Citron, Morton & Sophia Macht Professor of Law, University of Maryland Carey School of Law, and Author of Hate Crimes in CyberSpace (Harvard University Press 2014)

Join this University-wide conversation on cyberstalking, cyberbullying, trolling, and other acts of online aggression. Such acts create isolation and deep personal violations. It’s up to us to discourage online aggression and foster learning environments that strengthen our connections. Come hear how others healed and recovered from cyber hate crimes.

The talk will be recorded for hosted viewing on Tacoma, Bothell, and WWAMI sites for those unable to attend in person.

This event is part of a collaborative cyber safety initiative co-sponsored by Academic and Student Affairs, The Graduate School, Student Life, Undergraduate Affairs, Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity, and the Resilience Lab.
