This election season, there is potential for an increase in online harassment ranging from inappropriate comments to invasive doxing, cyberstalking, threats of violence and hate speech. There is also potential for these behaviors to continue after election day into the new year and beyond. UW staff, faculty and students may be targeted because of their personal or institutional beliefs or their area of research. This harassment can be upsetting and traumatic, but you do not have to deal with it alone.
