Contributions to Legal Tech
Through HateAid, Anna-Lena helps victims take civil action against digital violence such as insults, threats or defamation on the internet, where law enforcement has been shamingly scarce. In appropriate cases, HateAid covers the costs of legal advice, representation and even proceedings. From the start, HateAid has been working to develop in-house legal tech solutions to maximise cases and help as many victims as possible.
