Why Parents Need the EARN IT Act

Child sexual abuse material (CSAM) on the internet has been running rampant for far too long. 

The lack of accountability for creating safe digital spaces is harmful to children. Platforms like TikTok, Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat can provide some positive value to older children but, unfortunately, the harms are significant and undeniable. 

Parents and caregivers are confronted with this important question: does “Big Tech” really care about its customers? Let alone the well-being of children? The answer, backed by a preponderance of evidence, is that these platforms are businesses and they look out for their own profits at all costs while trying to shirk any form of responsibility. 

So, in the face of this what can parents and caregivers do? 

One really important thing all of us can do right now is pull together and support bills in Congress like the EARN IT Act which is the most important child protection legislation pending before Congress in 2022. The technology industry is using all sorts of lies and half-truths in its desperate attempts to smear the EARN IT Act. In reality, this bill creates a safer world for children while still respecting user privacy and free speech. The EARN IT Act will create the necessary changes we need to protect our children!
