Call to professionals to help victims of revenge porn

22:30 Jan 11 2014 Miami, FL, USA

Cyber Civil Rights Initiative (CCRI) is currently seeking professionals that are qualified, willing, and able to help victims of revenge porn. Victims across the United States are in dire need of attorneys, certified counselors/therapists, and victims advocates/social workers

Only a few states in the US have criminal laws against revenge porn. However, all states have civil statutes (e.g., invasion of privacy, intentional infliction of emotional distress, public disclosure of private facts, etc.) that apply to revenge porn cases. This means that, with the help of a lawyer, revenge porn victims can use these statutes to bring their perpetrators to justice. The organisation is therefore seeking lawyers that can write legal letters for victims and/or take their cases to civil court.
