Cyber Civil Rights Initiative
CCRI's mission is to raise awareness about online harassment and advocate for technological, social, and legal reform. CCRI prefers the term "nonconsensual pornography" to "revenge porn" and considers it a form of sexual abuse.
In August 2012, after struggling for years as a victim of revenge porn, Holly Jacobs started an online campaign, End Revenge Porn (ERP), which advocated for the criminalization of revenge porn. She teamed up with legal experts and anti-revenge porn advocates Mary Anne Franks, Charlotte Laws, and Danielle Citron and, in 2013, incorporated all of her advocacy work into the nonprofit organization, CCRI.
Holly Jacobs is the founder, president, and executive director of CCRI.
