CiviliNation provides a number of services for the larger online community. Each section below explains those services in more detail; please feel free to contact us with any questions. However, we cannot provide legal advice or mental health counseling, nor do we offer legal or mental health referral services.
CiviliNation provides both strategic direction as well as tactical tools to foster an online culture in which individuals can fully engage and contribute without fear or threat of being the target of unwarranted abuse, harassment, or lies.
The CiviliNation Harassment Barometer is a research report that monitors the prevalence of online harassment in the United States. The research, conducted by our research partners at the Advertising Benchmark Index, is updated regularly.
