The Internet is an invaluable resource to aid survivors of domestic violence and their children in finding safety and coping with issues of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual violence, stalking and abuse. However, in the hands of abusers and perpetrators this technology can be dangerous and potentially lethal.
Aided by the SafetyNet Project of the National Network to End Domestic Violence, WCADV provides advocates and allies with tools to recognize and protect themselves and their clients from abuses of technology, and helps address how ongoing and emerging technology issues impact the safety, privacy and accessibility rights of victims of domestic violence, sexual violence and stalking.
We can provide materials to help law enforcement, social services, coordinated community response teams and others to learn to identify and hold perpetrators accountable for misusing technology to impersonate, harass, stalk, and threaten.
