This is a talk to share my online harassment reporting tool that has the goal to serve 2 purposes: providing public legal education to others who experience online harassment and creating a record for the individual who is subject of the online harassment.


Any person who is reporting is open to selecting whether they would like me to follow up with them or refer them to others, as needed; this is ancillary to the 2 purposes identified above. I have been a victim of online harassment both as a lawyer and non-lawyer. While I am a lawyer and that affords me some privilege, as an Indigenous woman lawyer, I am not afforded all privileges that a white person may benefit from and experience.


Being a victim of online harassment as both a lawyer and non-lawyer, I have witnessed different reactions from policing agencies (duh!). I use my experiences online to develop safer experience for myself and I have been able to use this knowledge in practical ways. Seeing the number of times I had to repeat these practices to others I felt that building a reporting tool may be helpful.
