Hillary Clinton held an event yesterday that’s been receiving a lot of chatter. The event was live-streamed from Clinton’s Facebook page, and the whole goal was to reach millennial voters by talking to digital content creators and influencers. One of the issues she addressed at the event? Revenge porn.

YouTuber Chrissy Chambers told Clinton, In 2015, I came out as one of the first public figures who was a victim of revenge porn, and ever since have been trying to pursue justice for myself as well as other victims.”

Clinton thanked Chambers for being so open about her experience, and told her, “I will do everything I can as president, to try and figure out how we can give victims like you the tools you need, and the rest of society should support, to be able to protect yourself and by doing so, protect others.”

She then turned to the audience, and said, “Some of you have kept people alive, because you have been able to communicate with a person who was bullied. Or a young person who was struggling with their sexuality and feeling all alone. And you were able to give that person a sense of survival. And a feeling they weren’t by themselves.”

The event went on, and Clinton talked about other things such as LGBTQ+ issues, student loan debt, and even took a selfie with the crowd.
