What people have said about HeartMob
“HeartMob creates a safer space for women, trans people, queer people, and people of color who are disproportionately targeted by online abuse.”
Jamia Wilson, author, This Book Is Feminist and Young Gifted and Black
“As a frequent target of online harassment, I dreaded being on social media. It was scary, exhausting and very isolating. Then HeartMob came along and I was able to continue my advocacy work knowing that the HeartMob community had my back. I'm so grateful it exists!”
Canadian women's rights advocate
“Receiving messages of support from people at HeartMob was a form of relief. It reminded me that there are people who care enough about what is going on to write to me about it at a time when I felt upset and very isolated. They also countered the negativity and ensured that there was a stream of online positivity coming my way, which helped make the digital space feel safer again.”
“I love HeartMob because it offers a safe space where those facing online abuse can ask for help and support. It gives all of us a chance to be good Samaritans and have one another's backs online.”
Viktorya Vilk, Program Director for Digital Safety and Free Expression (and proud Heartmobber), PEN America
“Heartmob provides me an opportunity to be able to directly help current victims of something. My biggest draw to it is the potential to directly make a difference in people's lives. That helps me be willing to wake up on a day-to-day basis knowing what can actually help turn my experience into something. It's also the only platform that I've encountered that gives people the option to help somebody flag and report and document things.”
Nikki R., HeartMob User
“Heartmob gave me strength. I was getting exhausted from this harassment. My harassers were like insects, they followed me like bees. Heartmob helped me to alleviate that.”
Sheikh Sifat, HeartMob user
