The Family Online Safety Institute appreciated the opportunity to participate in the launch of First Lady Melania Trump’s Be Best initiative today. FOSI applauds the First Lady for her focus on children's social and emotional well-being, and promotion of kindness and compassion online. 

FOSI is committed to making the online world safer for children and their families. We look forward to working together to build a culture of responsibility online - including industry, law enforcement, government, parents, teachers, and the kids themselves to solve the challenges of our digital age. We will continue to seek and support the many ways to use technology for good and to apply the Golden Rule online.
