Elisa is well known for her work co-founding the Cyber Civil Rights Legal Project (CCRLP) a global pro bono project that empowers and helps individuals whose sexually explicit images are distributed online without their consent . The project helps these individuals - who are mostly women - regain control of their digital footprints and reclaim their online identities and their lives.
She founded the CCRLP along with her partner and friend back in 2014 on the principle that people have a right of privacy in their intimate photographs and videos, and that the public, online dissemination of that media without consent is an invasion of that sexual privacy amounting to a “cyber civil rights” violation.
