I realize I have detractors who will be very vocal precisely to stop people from reporting on this topic. The less is known the better for those who cause the problem in the first place. So to email me you'll first have to get over the fake news about me.
Recently a prominent librarian trainer said about me, after I suggested he raise the issue of sexual harassment at the ALA Midwinter meeting #alamw19, that I was "a dumpster fire of a human being" and I have "shitty behavior because [I'm] a bad person."

This is the kind of headwind you'll have to set aside should you decide to contact me with your stories no one else will hear but for me.
