NOVA’s Training Institute Presents: Sextortion Awareness and Prevention

March 31 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event

A Virtual Panel Discussion with Q&A Session

In today’s digital age, sexual exploitation is becoming more common, as people use social media platforms to coerce others into sending images of themselves engaging in sexual acts. In Pennsylvania, anyone who threatens to harm or withhold a reward, service or anything of value in order to coerce sexual acts, images or videos from a victim, commits the crime of sexual extortion.

Because approximately 71% of sextortion victims are under the age of 18, we invite parents, community members, educators, and other professionals to help raise awareness about sextortion. Hear from experts in the field of law enforcement, criminal justice, advocacy and prevention to make our communities safe from sextortion.

Featured Panelists:

  • Donna Greco, Policy Director, Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape
  • Brianna Dion, Victim Advocate, NOVA
  • Detective Ryan Kolb, Police Department, Bensalem
  • Kristin McElroy, Deputy District Attorney, Bucks County
  • Hayes Honer, Prevention Educator, NOVA

Moderated by: Jamie Pfister, Training Institute Coordinator, NOVA
