Welcome 2 Reality embarks on new policy effort to follow success of 2015

Through the work of Qur-an Webb and his associates, the bill proposed by Sen. Terry Gerratana, chair of the Public Health Committee, based on our Model Legislation, has been taken up by the Education Committee. The committee held a hearing on Raised Bill SB 949 on March 6, to much enthusiastic support from the committee.

In 2015, a proposed bill advocated by Welcome 2 Reality became a law requiring health and safety curricula to include instruction for students in safe use of social media.

Next Steps

Please ask your representative and senator to encourage the Education Committee to pass the Media Literacy and Digital Citizenship bill, SB 949.
