Social media is a vital tool for elected officials to engage with their constituents, share updates and hear feedback. Yet social media has also given rise to—and a platform for—online hate and threats. Those in leadership positions are often recipients of this violence. This workshop will explore how leaders and citizens can do more to make the digital world safer for our communities, our peers and ourselves. Get tips to protect your online presence. Learn online bystander strategies to intervene safely and provide support when you see cyberbullying. Reclaim your digital space for positive and constructive dialogue that benefits your community and your residents.
