3 Issues We Cannot Ignore. It's Time to Take Action!

It's October, and that means that a lot of attention is being paid to issues we at Enough Is Enough® care deeply about. Our goal is to  EDUCATE, EMPOWER  and  EQUIP  you with the tools and resources you need to keep you and your loved ones safe in the digital world. 

We've compiled an entire clearinghouse of  recovery, victim and survivor resources addressing a variety of issues, including domestic violence. Did you know domestic violence can be shaped by prior childhood sexual abuse -- and even the pornography industry which often normalizes the abuse and the degradation of women?

TAKE ACTION #1:   If you or someone you know is affected by domestic violence, please seek help. You can start by contacting National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1−800−799−SAFE (7233). Also, be sure to  visit our resources   to help guide you and your loved ones on the journey to healing and recovery.

October also marks  Cyber Security Awareness Month.  Now, more than ever, it's important to protect you and your loved ones from online threats including identify theft, phishing (being tricked into revealing personal information), access to account information by cyber criminals, and more.

TAKE ACTION #2 :   Start by checking out our  Cyber Security  section featuring ways to lock down your Internet-enabled devices, and our  "Online Guide to Privacy" featuring tools to protect your data.  Also, be sure to visit Homeland Security's   "Stop. Think. Connect" Toolkit   which has resources tailored to parents, businesses, law enforcement, and others. 

October also puts a national spotlight on bullying prevention.  Nearly half of young people have received intimidating, threatening or nasty messages online. Nearly three-fourths  of  young generations say they are concerned about cyberbullying  .

TAKE ACTION #3 :   Talk to your child to see if he or she is being bullied, or determine if he/she is the one doing the bullying. Teach your kids to create a digital world of kindness and civility, not meanness and hate. The consequences of bullying can be lifelong or even result in death. Please, take a moment to check out our  cyberbullying resources   and start having conversations with your child about cyberbullying today!

Thanks for working with Enough Is Enough® to defend child dignity in the digital world!
