Welcome! You are invited to jo in a webinar: Social Media Dangers: H ow Can We Make It Safer F or Kids?. After registering, you will recei ve a confirmation email about joining t he webinar.

Dear Friend,

Last week U.S. senators introduc ed a bipartisan bill aimed at protecti ng children from the potentially harmful impac ts of social media. Among other thin gs, the bill would require social med ia companies to:

Provide the option to disab le addictive features.
Give parents tools to tra ck time spent on apps.
Prevent and mitiga te harm to minors
Use a third par ty to perform independent reviews on risks
Gi ve data to scientists to conduct mo re research.

While this is a positive developme nt, we know that making social med ia safer for kids takes a l ot more than a bipartisan bill, if a nd when passed. It requires concerted effo rt amongst lawmakers, social media companies, paren ts, educators and (our favorite) kids themselv es who are educated in digital literacy.

We are devoting our next Cyberwise Cha t— Social Media Dangers: How Can We Ma ke it Safer for Kids?—to this importa nt topic.

We are very excited to welco me special guest David Ryan Polgar, a pioneeri ng tech ethicist who is the found er of All Tech is Human. Dav id specializes in uniting a diverse ran ge of stakeholders in order to tack le complex tech & society issues, cultivati ng conducive environments for forward progress.

Don't mi ss this one!
