Last Chance to Protect Children Online

Dear Friend, 

HB 1 (Social Media Use for Minors) and HB 3 (Age Verification for Online Materials Harmful to Minors) will be heard on the Senate Floor TOMORROW, February 21st, as one combined bill. Take action now. Tell your state Senator to protect kids from harm.

In our most recent action alert, we saw numerous examples of why this bill must pass. However, here’s just one example: 

According to Gallup, the average time spent on social media climbs from FOUR+ hours per day for 13-year-olds to as high as SIX hours per day for 17-year-olds.  

But thankfully, some conservatives in the Free State of Florida have a solution!

HB 1 would ban social media use for minors 16 and under. It would also require age verification for online materials harmful to minors. Currently, any child can gain access to obscene materials online with little restriction. This bill would put an end to this. 

Help protect the hope for Florida’s children. Send this petition to your state senator now and help protect students and children from the harm of obscene materials and the negative effects of social media.
