The Progress & Freedom Foundation (PFF) and the Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI) will co-host a National Press Club briefing entitled, Sending an Online Safety Message to Congress. This event will feature a discussion about the recently released report of the Online Safety and Technology Working Group (OSTWG), "Youth Safety on a Living Internet." OSTWG — a congressionally-mandated blue ribbon working group—analyzed the state of online child safety and offered policymakers and parents a wide array of recommendations for how to keep kids safe and secure in today's "always-on," interconnected world. Several OSTWG leaders will be on hand to discuss the report and outline the next steps that need to be taken on this front.
The event will begin with introductory remarks by Anna Gomez, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Communications and Information and Deputy Administrator, National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), U.S. Department of Commerce.
