The 22nd Annual Jacoby-Lunin Humanitarian Lectureship, in affiliation with the Carl & Dorothy Bennett Center for Judaic Studies.

In an era in which we live more and more of our lives online, Carrie Goldberg has dedicated her life to helping to create important legal safeguards. When Goldberg personally experienced online harassment, she discovered that police departments had little understanding of this form of harassment, and she couldn’t find either lawyers to prosecute the case or judges who understood the impact of such harassment on her personal and professional life. She became first her own advocate and then an advocate for the many women and young girls who have experienced online harassment.

In 2014 she founded her own firm, CA Goldberg, PLLC, which helps victims of cybercrimes. As of 2014 she also serves on the board of the Cyber Civil Rights Initiative, which is working to establish anti-revenge porn laws in all 50 states.

Goldberg will share the story of how she became first her own advocate and then an advocate for the many women and young girls who have experienced online harassment. As she puts it, her firm’s purpose is to stop, “a**holes, psychos, trolls, and pervs,” and restore peace to her clients’ lives. Goldberg speaks about consent, the spread of online harassment and sextortion, and points to the solutions within reach, including how each of us can protect ourselves and others.
