Audrie Pott and Daisy Coleman never met, but their heartbreaking stories share many similarities. Both girls were sexually assaulted, and both experienced bullying and shaming online afterwards. The harassment caused Pott to end her life.  

The new Netflix film Audrie & Daisy tells their parallel stories. As seen in the doc, Coleman found support online, after another rape survivor, Delaney Henderson, reached out to her on Facebook. Now Coleman has become an activist and is one of the co-founders of advocacy group SafeBAE

Coleman, Henderson, and others appear in a video for a new campaign to #StopTheShame and end online harassment. 

The website Heartmob provides a platform where people can get support or help others who are being harassed or bullied.
