OJJDP will host the Webinar, which is a collaborative effort by the U.S. Departments of Justice, Education, and Agriculture; the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI); and the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force Program. This Webinar—the second in a two-part series on Internet safety—will focus on sexting and sextortion. An ICAC Task Force representative will discuss sexting and share information to help parents, teachers, counselors, coaches, and school resource officers understand the dangers involved. Presenters will also provide tools on how to help youth say "no" to sexting. Representatives from the FBI will discuss the dangers of sextortion, highlight laws related to sextortion, and share resources for working with youth.
