Ban Revenge Porn – Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Twitter: @banrevengeporn
the law should recognise when a person’s private life is being violated. The act of revenge porn is spiteful and it intends to cause harm, we are therefore pushing for the UK government to legislate to recognise it as a sexual crime. For further information visit www.banrevengeporn.com

Bolt Burdon Kemp – Email:firstname.lastname@example.org Tel: 020 7288 4800
Bolt Burdon Kemp is a firm of solicitors who specialise in securing compensation for injured people. Our dedicated abuse team brought the first successful claim for compensation in relation to sexting. We have extensive experience in cases relating to image-based sexual abuse.
We are campaigning alongside VOIC for revenge porn to be called and acknowledged for what it is – sexual abuse. Too often survivors are faced with police officers who haven’t been properly trained to understand the issues; websites which are hard to contact to get the content removed; and social stigma that it’s somehow the victim’s fault this happened to them.
We understand that when faced with all this, it is hard to know where to turn, who can help, or even what your options may be. Our solicitors will work with you to help find the right options for you.
