“Cyberbullying: Technology, Responsibility, and Community Safeguards”
[FREE EVENT OPEN TO MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC]
Join us on Wednesday, April 14th at 7pm EDT for a symposium on Cyberbullying.
Cyberbullying can happen to any child – with long lasting harm.
In this 90-minute symposium we will hear the story of a 16-year-old teen who was the victim of cyberbullying during months of the pandemic and unfortunately took his own life. You will hear his story as told by his surviving family members.
We will also hear from Jane Clementi, the founder of the Tyler Clementi Foundation, about their work in curbing online and offline bullying, and whose advocacy efforts have effectively reformed local and state laws.
Our expert panel presenters include Dr. Sameer Hinduja of the Cyberbullying Research Center, a prominent psychological expert in the field of cyberbullying and teen mental health, who will outline how cyberbullying can impact the mental health of young people and the need for technological accountability to prevent these harms.
Our tech expert will share insight into the Human and AI-powered tools that are currently being used for content moderation on social media platforms to detect and address crimes and harassing behaviors perpetrated online, how these tools work, and about their effectiveness as well as limitations.
We will open the floor for participants’ Q&A and value your input, feedback, and questions in our discussion.
It will be an evening of constructive discourse on how to build a legal, educational, and technological environment that prioritizes the health of young citizens.
We hope you’ll join us. Register here.
