How Youth Experience Online Sexual Abuse and What We Can Do About It

The online sexual abuse of children is a problem growing at an exponential rate with very few sustainable solutions being implemented. That doesn’t have to be the case, though. 

Common sense best practices implemented by Internet and technology platforms, sound legislation that prioritizes the safety of vulnerable and marginalized children, and better resources for parents can make a significant positive impact. 

So what are those solutions? 

In this presentation for Stronger Together, Lina Nealon (Director of Corporate and Strategic Initiatives at the National Center on Sexual Exploitation) explains the problems children are facing online and discusses solutions to help address the issues at their roots.
