Wole Idowu, TNGL President and #HackHarassment Ambassador here!
Here's a write-up of the events we did with our campaign with #HackHarassment. #HackHarassment is a joint initiative is working with Intel, Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation, and Vox Media with the goal of putting a stop to online harassment, an issue that affects 70% of young adults.
ToyzNation Gaming League, an official Carnegie Mellon Student organization has been hosting several #HackHarassment events involving an international Hip Hop Artist, Carnegie Mellon's Music Department, Carnegie Mellon's IDeATe program, professional producers, Carnegie Mellon's Entertainment Technology Center, and participants from across the Mid-Atlantic and Midwest region coming together to collaborate on how we all can put a stop to online harassment once and for all
This campaign is an ongoing thing. We hosted a smaller second event the week after. We continued the discussion with with a gaming event and an engaging discussion between students on how they can collaborate with others to end online harassment, particularly in the online gaming community.
