Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)

The Anti-Harassment Tools team at the Wikimedia Foundation is currently working on features to allow administrators and other community leaders to more efficiently prevent and deal with incidents of online harassment. We’ll be fairly early in this process in August 2017 and we will need input from users on various Wikimedia communities to ensure we’re on the right track.

What will attendees take away from this session?

Attendees should leave with an understanding of the Anti-Harassment Tools team’s plans for the next two years and how they can participate in our software development process.
