#BeAwareB4YouShare: Ministry of Justice Launches #RevengePorn Campaign

Today the Ministry of Justice, in partnership with the UK Safer Internet Centre, Women’s Aid and Suzy Lamplugh Trust, has launched a social media campaign to discourage the sharing of revenge porn. rp-digi-postcard-3

People who maliciously share sexually explicit pictures of someone else without their consent will face up to two years in prison under a new offence being introduced through the Criminal Justice and Courts Bill and the MoJ is raising awareness of this new law to deter potential offenders.

The Be Aware B4 You Share campaign is also highlighting to victims that the law is on their side and encouraging them to feel able to come forward to report incidents and seek advice from a new government-funded helpline (Tel: 0844 6000 495).

Using social media to spread the message, the campaign is encouraging the public to support the drive to make revenge porn socially unacceptable and bring it to an end.

To find out more and support the campaign visit the campaign page where materials are available to download, read the Justice Minister’s blog on the issue, join the conversation on Facebook or and use your voice to say #NoToRevengePorn

Please contact the MoJ on campaigns@justice.gsi.gov.uk with any questions or to let them know about what you’re doing to support the campaign.
