AG James, Sen Gounardes Join Parents, Advocates to Celebrate New York's Landmark Child Internet Safety Laws

With bi-partisan support, the New York State Legislature passes first-in-the-nation legislation to protect kids online from addictive algorithms and data collection

NEW YORK, NY (06/10/2024) (readMedia)-- On Monday, Attorney General Letitia James, State Senator Andrew Gounardes, and Assemblymember Nily Rozic will join New York parents, educators, advocates, and more for a virtual press conference to celebrate the New York State Legislature passing the SAFE for Kids Act and the New York Child Data Privacy Act, legislation designed to protect children and teens on social media from addictive algorithms and exploitative data collection. Parents, educators, and advocates from across the state were instrumental in passing the two pieces of legislation, standing firm against Big Tech's extreme lobbying fight to oppose these crucial measures. The legislation passed last week in the State Senate and Assembly with bipartisan support, and now heads to Governor Kathy Hochul's desk for signature.
