True stories from Tucson students:

“Did you know I met a man on the KIK app and I’m boarding a plane to meet him?”
“Did you know a guy I game with on Fortnite offered to pay for my battle pass if I sent him a nude photo of myself?”
“Did you know when I was in middle school a girl in my class bullied me all the time. I felt powerless against her.  One day she sexually assaulted me.”

It’s a brutal time to be a student.

Now, in the digital age, children and teens are exposed to multiple risks through their use of cell phones, the internet, social media and online gaming. Predators creep into a child’s life while they are seemingly safe in their own homes, shattering children’s rights, impeding their healthy development and well-being, causing mental and emotional suffering and even death.
