Help Protect Kids from Online Tracking
Monday, February 6, 2012
Tomorrow, February 7th, 2012, Common Sense Media is urging everyone to take action.
1. Contact your representatives to urge them to become a cosponsor of the Do Not Track Kids Act (H.R. 1895). Find your representative online or call the U.S. House of Representatives switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask to be connected.
You can read more about the bill on Congressman Ed Markey's website.
For more on the topic of kids' privacy, Common Sense Media put together a Policy Brief, Protecting Our Kids' in a Digital World.
2. Take part in a Twitter Chat on February 7th at 11am PT/ 2pm ET to help bring increased attention to the important issues of kids' privacy. All the details of the tweet chat are on this Common Sense Media web page.
Our kids are dealing with a world that never existed when we were growing up. Many adults still don't understand the ramifications of things they post online, even supposedly intelligent politicians. How can we except minor children to make those decisions correctly. They need privacy protection and this bill will give that to them. Politicians are on their own.
