As social media has become increasingly popular, so has its use as a tool for disseminating information about harm and for seeking a form of accountability from those who harm. On its face, this appears to be a positive development. However, in some cases, social media itself has become a tool used to harm and to evade accountability.
Those of us who are engaged in community accountability (CA) efforts are wrestling with how to manage the impact(s) both positive and negative of social media.
Join us to brainstorm and discuss ways that CA efforts are hindered and helped by the use of social media. Let’s develop some best practices together for addressing the issues that might and do arise on and offline. Workshop participants will contribute to developing guidelines that can be shared with our broader communities.
