Design for Safety - the book!

Before joining the tech field in 2016, I was a volunteer rape crisis counselor and domestic violence educator. As I grew as a designer and technologist, I started to see how technology itself is often enabling domestic abuse and other interpersonal harm. It seemed to me like recognizing this reality and applying thoughtful design practices could make a big difference.

I created a conference talk about the topic, which led to my book, Design for Safety. In it, you'll find a multitude of examples of how technology-facilitated domestic violence happens, and a specific strategy for how we as designers can push back and prevent the harm or mitigate its impact.
