Taking Action Together: “Rethinking Our Behavior Online: Hit Backspace on Hate” with Trisha Prabhu

Zoom

Join Trisha Prabhu, Founder and CEO of anti-cyberbullying initiative ReThink, for a conversation about online hate and how can promote safer, kinder, more inclusive digital interactions. ReThink is a patented, globally acclaimed app that proactively stops cyberbullying, before the damage is done. The technology has been named one of Google Play’s Most Innovative Apps and shared with youth around the world. For her efforts, Trisha/ReThink have been featured on the TED stage, at The White House, and on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list (among others!). In this program, Trisha will discuss the most pressing digital harms today’s youth face and how youth can tackle these challenges and build healthy, safe relationships online. In particular, she will talk to youth about the power of ReThinking, or taking a moment to pause, review, and reconsider before texting or posting something online. Trisha will show how, by putting criticality at the forefront of their interactions, youth can ensure that their digital experience is rooted in positivity and kindness — not hate. Trisha will also offer attendees her top tips on being a responsible digital citizen, sharing key digital literacy insights that are crucial to thrive in the internet age.
