This may be an option worth considering, especially in cases of egregious and/or prolonged harassment where considerable stress is caused. Outreach to a legal counsel local to you could help you explore your options, if you are considering pursuing the matter through the legal avenue. Often, local lawyers will charge either a very small fee or no fee at all for an initial consultation.
Although the Foundation’s Legal team can not offer legal advice to community members, they may be able to help you understand the legal landscape and offer a referral for legal counsels in your country/region that you can consider, under the Community Health Legal Defense program. In specific situations, it may also be possible for your legal case to be funded, under this program. You can reach the legal team directly via firstname.lastname@example.org, or you may be referred to them through the Trust and Safety team if deemed a good option for your case. You should receive an initial response within seven business days. Remember that if you feel your safety is imminently at risk, contacting local authorities should be your priority. Threats of harm in general can also be reported to the Foundation, in line with the reporting protocol described here.
If legal action is taken against you, as part of ongoing harassment against you, you may be eligible for assistance by the Foundation. You can see more information and eligibility criteria under the Legal Fees Assistance program page.
