“Staying connected through online events is becoming second nature,” says CBLDF Education Coordinator Karen Evans. “As we adapt to this new way of doing things in a constantly changing environment, it’s vital to keep in mind how to protect each other, especially kids. This resource helps any kind of event organizer with tips on how to protect privacy, manage inappropriate behavior, and protect young people. It also has a helpful checklist and table to help you make decisions for hosting your event.”
