Glitch is a UK based charity recognised internationally for working to make the online space safe for all by raising awareness of online abuse and its impact through an intersectional lens, advocating for systematic change from both tech companies and governments as well as delivering a range of educational programmes.on digital citizenship, digital self care and safety.
We want to see an increase in digital citizenship across all online users and to instil these beliefs: that our online community is as real as our offline one and that we should all be working together to make it a better place. Fix the glitch now for a safer web tomorrow.
The Cambridge Dictionary defines the word glitch as, “a small problem or fault that prevents something from being successful or working as well as it should.” We think that sums up the state of the internet today; the glitches that allow online abuse to proliferate are preventing it from fulfilling its potential and we all have a part to play in fixing them. We believe that online abuse, in all its forms, is a vehicle to divide society and spread fear. When we look back on this period of time, we want to be able to say that the current surge was merely a ‘glitch’ in our history. That is why it is crucial that we work together to fix the glitch and eradicate online abuse.
