EIE PRESIDENT DONNA RICE HUGHES AND 101 EXPERT ALICIA KOZAKIEWICZ ON FOX & FRIENDS
Following the exciting national launch of Internet Safety 101®, EIE President Donna Rice Hughes and Alicia Kozakiewicz, survivor of an Internet predator and 101® featured expert joined Fox & Friends to talk about the Internet Safety 101SM Program and to educate parents about Internet grooming.
Alicia Kozakiewicz is a teen survivor of an Internet predator. At the age of 13, she was abducted from her family home by someone she had met online. For four days, she was tortured and held captive in the basement of her abductor. Now, as a student at Pittsburgh University, Alicia has continued her mission to educate children and families on the dangers of the Internet by sharing her story. Alicia is a member of Enough Is Enough’s Internet Safety Council, and has appeared in Internet safety films for the FBI and the Pennsylvania Center for Safe Schools. In 2007, she received the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s Courage Award. A key legislative initiative, “Alicia’s Law,” has been launched in her name throughout the country to increase funding for the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force officers on the front lines of tracking cyber predators.
