Raise Awareness about Internet Safety

Safer Internet Day is an international education and awareness-raising effort, celebrated in over 100 countries on Feb. 11, 2020. The day brings communities together to address online issues such as cyberbullying and social networking for a safer and better internet.

Led by Connect Safely in the United States, Safer Internet Day encourages parents, students and educators to discuss trending digital issues and empowers them to use technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively.

Together with our PTA Connected sponsors, and especially Google, National PTA is proud to support the goals of Safer Internet Day by helping PTAs nationwide to host events and share resources that help families navigate today's digital world.
