The Tyler Clementi Institute for CyberSafety at New York Law School
The Tyler Clementi Institute for CyberSafety includes the first-of-its-kind pro bono clinic that will provide free lawyers to victims of cyber-harassment. Cyber-harassment is a type of bullying or cruelty that takes place using the internet.
The advent of the internet and social media have introduced a world of opportunity for people to act responsibly and, unfortunately, also with great disrespect and cruelty. Tyler Clementi’s story resonates with many who have been targeted maliciously using technology, and the Tyler Clementi Foundation encourages individuals and communities to take a pro-active stance in the prevention of hostile environments on #Day1.
Cyberbullying or cyber-harassment happens to many, and we encourage you to speak about it by sharing your story so that others may be aware and learn ways to bring communities together to prevent bullying.
If you are a victim of cyber-bullying and need information on how to report and stop the harassment, visit Understanding Cyberbullying in College for tips, tools and solutions for recognizing and stopping bullying in social media and online.
