Now, more than ever, we must SCREEN Hate to protect teens and young adults online.

In the past few years, our teens and young adults’ screen time has soared. Millions of messages are coming at them, including hate-based rhetoric designed to look like harmless internet activity. It’s not a matter of if they will find hate online – it’s a matter of when. Trusting that your family’s values will protect them is not enough. It’s our job to help teens and young adults screen for hateful activity online and seek help when needed.
