You’re not really supposed to go out during the pandemic. So you’re spending a lot more time online. Here’s the deal though: There are creeps out there and they’re spending more time online too. They may pretend to be your age and act like they’re your friend. They could seem cool at first, and then things can turn bad. We work with a lot of young people who met their traffickers online. The good news is that, just like with COVID-19, you can take steps to protect yourself and still stay connected online.
