online abuse (n)
Any form of online communication (speech/writing/behaviour) that is intended to inflict hatred upon a person on the basis of characteristics including, but not limited to, race, religion, skin colour, sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity, disability status, or national origin.
We are the Empower Project Mentees and as part of the Empower Trustees project we have chosen to run a campaign on 'The Experiences of Online Abuse in Scotland.'
Our survey and campaign aims to explore the experiences of those impacted by online abuse and whether individuals have felt it was possible to take action against the online abuse they encountered.
We would be very grateful to hear from you, to support us in creating a report and campaign on online abuse in Scotland. Any information you give us, will of course be entirely confidential.
