How to take ACTION NOW?!


Our (Online) Petition


Our online petition is a great way to take action now. Join the thousands of others around the world who are looking to be heard in government and across social media platforms to make it mandatory that age/ID verification becomes the norm. Should adults have the ability to access children on social media? Do kids and other vulnerable persons have the right to be safe online? Hard copy petition coming soon in North America!
