Issue: Digital Defamation
Digital Defamation involves online hate speech, defamation and/or profiling of various minority groups including, but not limited to, the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community, youth, the elderly, disabled, racial, ethnic, or religious minorities, and other traditionally underrepresented groups.

To report an incident of bias, discrimination, or defamation online, please email as much information about the incident as possible, including at least two ways to contact you, to defamation@onlinepolicy.org.

For information on digital defamation directed at a particular community, choose the relevant community program from the Programs pull-down menu on the right of most pages of this web site.
