Protect Our Children: Resources Seen in our Show

"Protect our Chidren" is hosted by Eyewitness News Anchor Lori Stokes, and deals with the explosion of sexting and the effect it has on teens, who are being trapped once pictures go public and they lose control of them. Sextortion rings of pedophiles and sex traffickers are now more common than we realize. The special also deals with the issues of consent and safe dating.

Here are resourcs seen in our show.
