Safety Net Project
Technology helps victims and their children successfully flee violent batterers, stalkers and rapists. But what millions don't realize is the dangerous and potentially lethal sides of various technologies in the hands of abusers and perpetrators. NNEDV's Safety Net: Safe & Strategic Technology Project addresses how technology impacts the safety, privacy, accessibility, and civil rights of victims by:
- Educating victims, their advocates and the general public on ways to use technology strategically to help find safety and escape domestic violence, dating violence, sexual violence, stalking and abuse;
- We have two dozen handouts, many in multiple languages at: Technology Safety Resources
- Training law enforcement, social services, coordinated community response teams and others how to hold perpetrators accountable for misusing technology to impersonate, harass, stalk, surveil, and threaten.
- Advocating for strong local, state, national and international policies and practices that ensure the safety, privacy and civil rights of all victims and survivors.
NNEDV's Safety Net Project addresses how technology can be harnessed successfully to do effective outreach, intervention, and violence prevention work.
Since 2002, the Safety Net Project has trained more than 50,000 advocates, police, prosecutors and others. Read more
