      October has been designated "National Cyber-Security Month" and online child
      safety issues remain the focus of much debate on Capitol Hill. I invite you
      to join us on Wednesday, October 3 at Noon for an event discussing
      ³Cyber-Safety in a Web 2.0 World: What Parents and Policymakers Need to
      Know.² Representative Melissa Bean, sponsor of the "Safeguarding America's
      Families by Enhancing and Reorganizing New and Efficient Technologies Act"
      (H.R. 3461), will address attendees prior to a panel discussion.
      Representative Bean's bill proposes a nationwide awareness campaign to
      educate parents, children and consumers on Internet safety. A panel of
      leading child safety experts, all authors of new online safety guides for
      parents, will discuss existing child safety tools, strategies, and best
      practices. The panelists will also debate the role of policymakers in
      promoting online safety.

      This event will take place in the Cannon House Office Building (Room 121)
      and lunch will be served. More details can be found down below and you can
      RSVP at the following website:

      October has been designated "National Cyber-Security Month" and policymakers
      continue to debate what additional steps need to be taken to protect
      children online from objectionable content or unwanted contacts. In the
      meantime, however, parents are dealing with that task every day. In carrying
      out those challenging responsibilities, they will need all the help and
      advice they can get. This Progress & Freedom Foundation panel will feature
      some of the leading experts on online child safety in America and the books
      they have authored about these issues. The participants will discuss their
      advice for parents on this front and also outline what step public officials
      should take to assist parents and kids. Those interested in attending should
