MAMA: Mothers Against Media Addiction

January 13 @ 1:00pm-3:00pm

Join us January 13 for the Vermont launch of Mothers Against Media Addiction—or M.A.M.A. to learn how you can advocate for a future that protects children and teens from both the harms of media addiction and being relentlessly targeted by hidden algorithms that exploit their emotions for profit. Julie will be joined by Eyes Up To Thrive, a collective of Vermont parents who are introducing new, bipartisan legislation to keep schools healthy, safe places for kids’ to learn and limit screen time.

Julie Scelfo is not only a celebrated journalist (former New York Times), but a conscientious mom who is deeply concerned about the harmful impact that technology is having on our children. In collaboration with an arsenal of top experts, Julie is creating a grassroots movement to empower parents to fight back against Big Tech at this critical moment in time.

Also hear from local Vermont parent and public health nurse, Laura Derrendinger, who will present the research and subsequent policy recommendations that formed currently proposed Vermont legislation on the topic of children, digital and online products and how these products are used in schools.

Learn how you can also help your own family and children navigate these challenges today.
