Uplift is dedicated to combating sexual abuse in online communities through education and advocacy. We work to ensure that these flourishing communities are safe for the millions of people who connect through them.
Uplift works to combat online violence through three key initiatives: working with convention organizers, parterning with platforms, and empowering communities.
From years of experience in our unique line of work, we have developed a toolkit to empower organizers to shape their conventions into safer and more inclusive spaces for all attendees. Learn more at conresources.org.
We work with platforms to promote high-level creators' understanding of appropriate fan / creator interactions, to ensure that they are consistently respecting boundaries and receiving consent. These proactive steps help these creators continue to be positive influences on the community.
Each one of Uplift's staff and volunteers are passionate members of online communities. Through campaigns like our Safer Community Pledge and #LoveNotPotions, we provide visible and impactful steps our peers can take with us to create change.
