But the real question is, how many are being silenced and victimized by thesecovert tactics? How can you identify and respond? How can you keep fromgetting #canceled? What are the civil and criminal legal options available to you?

glitter bombs, join CRT expert Attorney Rachel Citak and Canceled Out podcast

victims and pending litigation, coming straight from an Ohio neighborhood near
