HOW DOES LIONESS WORK WITH STORY-SHARERS?
The Lioness team follows up with those who share stories and information via their preferred communication method. Where appropriate, we solicit more information — screenshots, recordings, first-person accounts, corroboration from other witnesses — all off-the-record.
If the information is deemed newsworthy, Lioness compiles relevant story information and privately shares it with a network of trusted journalists. If the information is sensitive in nature, we will only use encrypted channels to communicate with journalists, and will not include personally-identifiable-information.
Lioness serves as a sounding board for sources, answering questions about speaking with the media, helping set terms for conversation (on background, off the record), and providing connections to free 30-minute consultations with legal counsel if the source is sharing sensitive information.
