The Fourth Annual Community Issues Forum, scheduled for Friday, May 18, will have a theme of “Bridging the Digital Divide Between Parents and Youth.” The event will take place from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Pointe in The Pyramid.
The goal of the conference is to bring local area youth, parents, community leaders and the academic community together to address issues of Internet safety, cyber bullying and Web predators. The conference aims to foster and strengthen community partnerships that promote improved safety responses at every level in our community.
In attendance will be experts from the Long Beach Police Department Computer Crimes Unit, the nationally recognized nonprofit organization I-Safe, and CSULB Education Psychology and Administration’s Jennifer Lamkins, along with other technology specialists. There will also be a panel of parents and students as well as ample opportunity for discussion among participants.
