Pen America

civil society

We know that online abuse challenges livelihoods, undermines equity, and stifles free speech. We also know that it can lead to offline violence and put lives at risk. PEN America is committed to fighting online abuse and making online spaces safer, more equitable, and more free by:

  1. equipping those facing abuse with resources and trainings to defend themselves;
  2. collaborating with media organizations, universities, and other employers to protect and support staff facing harassment;
  3. conducting research and advocacy to hold social media companies accountable for online harms; and
  4. working in coalition with partner organizations to fight back.
